  • Publication number: 20210264558
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to monitor, by a process monitor, one or more processing factors of one or more client devices hosting one or more user sessions. More particularly, the systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to generate, responsively, a scene generation plan based on one or more of a digital representation of an N dimensional space or at least one of the one or more processing factors, and generate, by a global scene generator, a global scene common to the one or more client devices based on the digital representation of the space. The systems, apparatuses and methods may further provide for performing, by a local scene generator, at least a portion of the global illumination based on one or more of the scene generation plan, or application parameters.

  • Patent number: 11099800
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, the render rate is varied across and/or up and down the display screen. This may be done based on where the user is looking in order to reduce power consumption and/or increase performance. Specifically the screen display is separated into regions, such as quadrants. Each of these regions is rendered at a rate determined by at least one of what the user is currently looking at, what the user has looked at in the past and/or what it is predicted that the user will look at next. Areas of less focus may be rendered at a lower rate, reducing power consumption in some embodiments.

  • Patent number: 11004265
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to subdivide a patch generated in graphics processing pipeline into sub-patches, and generate sub-patch tessellations for the sub-patches. More particularly, systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to diverge tessellation sizes to a configurable size within an interior region of a patch or sub-patches based on a position of each of the tessellations. The systems, apparatuses and methods may determine a number of tessellation factors to use based on one or more of a level of granularity of one or more domains of a scene to be digitally rendered, available computing capacity, or power consumption to compute the number of tessellation factors.
