I have installed a new version of Process Explorer v15.3 and it has a new tab GPU.It is very useful, but I cant't understand what means feature called Engines. On my Radeon Mobility HD 5470 1 Gb it shows 6 engines. When I run some heavy 3d game I see only one engine active (0).Now when I have Chrome browser opened it shows small activity of 5 Engine. So does anybody know what hardware graphic card elements do this engines show and corresponds? Is there some detail information about their realisation?Thanks in advance.

Have you investigated in the Sysinternals Forum? –  CharlieRB Feb 25 '13 at 14:04
there are no information which engine has which function. Only AMD/nVIDIA and Intel know this. Mark talked about it here a bit: channel9.msdn.com/posts/… –  magicandre1981 Feb 25 '13 at 19:29
