  • Publication number: 20220148261
    Abstract: Methods, systems and apparatuses may provide for technology that determines the size of a graphics primitive, renders pixels associated with the graphics primitive on a per tile basis if the size exceeds a threshold, and renders the pixels associated with the graphics primitive in a mesh order if the size does not exceed the threshold. In one example, the technology discards state data associated with the graphics primitive in response to a completion of rendering the pixels associated with the graphics primitive in the mesh order.

  • Patent number: 11308648
    Abstract: Sampling circuitry independently accesses channels of texture data that represent a set of pixels. One or more processing units separately compress the channels of the texture data and store compressed data representative of the channels of the texture data for the set of pixels. The channels can include a red channel, a blue channel, and a green channel that represent color values of the set of pixels and an alpha channel that represents degrees of transparency of the set of pixels. Storing the compressed data can include writing the compress data to portions of a cache. The processing units can identify a subset of the set of pixels that share a value of a first channel of the plurality of channels and represent the value of the first channel over the subset of the set of pixels using information representing the value, the first channel, and boundaries of the subset.

  • Patent number: 11263720
    Abstract: A control surface tracks an individual cacheline in the original surface for frequent data values. If so, control surface bits are set. When reading a cacheline from memory, first the control surface bits are read. If they happen to be set, then the original memory read is skipped altogether and instead the bits from the control surface provide the value for the entire cacheline.

  • Publication number: 20220051473
    Abstract: Briefly, in accordance with one or more embodiments, a processor performs a coarse depth test on pixel data, and performs a final depth test on the pixel data. Coarse depth data is stored in a coarse depth cache, and per pixel depth data is stored in a per pixel depth cache. If a result of the coarse depth test is ambiguous, the processor is to read the per pixel depth data from the per pixel depth cache, and to update the coarse depth data with the per pixel depth data if the per pixel depth data has a smaller depth range than the coarse depth data.
