  • Patent number: 11182296
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to track graphics pipeline operations. More particularly, the systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to track operation dependencies between graphics pipeline operations for blocks of pixel samples and stall one or more of the pipeline operations based on the operation dependencies. The systems, apparatuses and methods may further provide cache pre-fetch hardware to monitor processing of blocks of pixel samples and fetch a next block of the pixel samples from the memory into a cache before completion of processing a current block of pixel samples based on one or more of the pipeline operations or a surface state of one or more regions of a screen space.

  • Patent number: 10867583
    Abstract: Systems and methods may provide for determining a start time for an output image scanner to begin scanning an output image to a display device, determining a processing start time for each row of blocks of image pixel data within a rasterizer to ensure its completion before each row of blocks of image pixel data within the output image begin to be scanned out, and scheduling the start of processing of each row of blocks of image pixel data. In one example, the start time for the rasterizer to process a row of blocks of image pixel data uses the number of graphical objects to rendered into the output image and the processing times required by prior images.
