Version 1.3 of intel-gpu-tools was released with "too much stuff changed", well, with 177 changes compared to the earlier release of this open-source GPU tools package for Intel hardware.

Intel GPU Tools 1.3 features improvements to their test suite, DPF tool for handling L3 re-mapping on Gen7/Ivy-Bridge, robustifying against WC GTT mappings, improvements to the register dumper (reg_dumper) and the register read/write tools, and initial support for Intel Haswell hardware.

The intel-gpu-tools package offers up a variety of small tools for use with Intel graphics during development and testing, e.g. for register dumping, BIOS dumping, upload tests, GPU top, etc.
