I tried to analyze the rendering of Skyrim with intel GPA's frame cpature(Ctrl+Shift+C),but i found it only worked in the starup menu,when i entered the scene, it showed 'Unsupported D3DFORMAT: 0x5343564e', my system is this:
Error Log: [TAL][WIN pid=4084][ 90c] Unsupported D3DFORMAT: 0x5343564e
it was my first time to ues intel GPA ,does this tool work correctly with AIT or nvidia ' grapics card???

I've used gpa with a 480 without problems, I doubt that is an issue. The problem here is probably skyrim using vendor specific formats (not exposed by d3d9) which intel gpa does not know about. (I know it understands intz and rawz, but there might be others I guess).
- Intel® GPA does not support frame capture or analysis for those applications which utilize any of the following features:
- Execute on the Debug D3D runtime system
- Use the Reference D3D Device
- The Intel® GPA System Analyzer HUD may not be displayed in applications that use copy-protection, anti-debugging mechanisms, or non-standard encrypted launching schemes.
- Intel® GPA provides analysis functionality by inserting itself between your application and DirectX*. Therefore, Intel GPA may not work correctly with certain applications which themselves hook or intercept DirectX* APIs or interfaces.
- Intel® GPA Frame Analyzer runs best on 64-bit operating systems with a minimum of 4GB of physical memory. Additionally, consider running Intel GPA Frame Analyzer in a networked configuration (the server is your target graphics device, and the client running the Intel GPA Frame Analyzer tool is a 64-bit OS with at least 4GB of memory). On 32-bit operating systems (or 64-bit operating systems with <4GB of memory), warning messages, parse errors, very long load times, or other issues may occur when loading a large or complex frame capture file.
- Frame capture using Intel® GPA Monitor runs best on 64-bit operating systems with a minimum of 4GB of physical memory. On 32-bit operating systems (or 64-bit operating systems with <4GB of memory), out of memory or capture failed messages can occur.
