To render images at interactive framerates, engines have to approximate the behavior of real world phenomena – such as shadows – rather than simulating them. As real time rendering techniques continue to push towards photorealism, the cost of these approximations approaches the point of diminishing returns. Although traditionally
Understanding PowerVR Series5XT: Multithreading, multitasking ALUs, the MicroKernel and core scalability
A unified architecture means that the ALUs (Arithmetic Logic Units – the bits of the hardware that do all the number crunching as part of shader or compute program processing) are generic and not dedicated to specific processing tasks. This type of ‘universal (or unified) shading’ approach is
