  • Patent number: 11593154
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to dynamically prioritizing, selecting or ordering a plurality threads for execution by processor circuitry based on a quality of service and/or class of service value/indicia assigned to the thread by an operating system executed by the processor circuitry. As threads are executed by processor circuitry, the operating system dynamically updates/associates respective class of service data with each of the plurality of threads. The current quality of service/class of service data assigned to the thread by the operating system is stored in a manufacturer specific register (MSR) associated with the respective thread. Selection circuitry polls the MSRs on a periodic, aperiodic, intermittent, continuous, or event-driven basis and determines an execution sequence based on the current class of service value associated with each of the plurality of threads.

  • Patent number: 11574249
    Abstract: Techniques for refinement of data pipelines are provided. An original file of serialized objects is received, and an original pipeline comprising a plurality of transformations is identified based on the original file. A first computing cost is determined for a first transformation of the plurality of transformations. The first transformation is modified using a predefined optimization, and a second cost of the modified first transformation is determined. Upon determining that the second cost is lower than the first cost, the first transformation is replaced, in the original pipeline, with the optimized first transformation.

  • Patent number: 11527033
    Abstract: A graphics pipeline includes a tessellator stage having a sub-patch distributor and a plurality of tessellators. The sub-patch distributor divides an input patch into a plurality of sub-primitive groups, with the primitive group limit governing the maximum permissible size for a given group of sub-primitives to be assigned to a tessellator. The sub-patch distributor recursively identifies a plurality of regions of the input patch, with the size and number of primitives of each region based on the specified primitive group limit. The sub-patch distributor assigns different regions to different sub-patch groups and distributes the sub-patch groups among the plurality of tessellators.

  • Patent number: 11410385
    Abstract: A method of processing primitives within a tiling unit of a graphics processing system is described. The method comprises determining whether a primitive falls within a tile based on positions of samples within each pixel. If it is determined that the primitive does fall within a tile based on the positions of samples within pixels in a tile, an association between the tile and the primitive is stored to indicate that the primitive is present in the tile. For example, an identifier for the primitive may be added to a control stream for the tile to indicate that the primitive is present in the tile. Various different methods are described to make the determination and these may be used separately or in any combination.
