IMG A-Series: The GPU for Generation 2020
In this article, we are referring to the various problems we encountered when it comes to sandwiching compute tasks during graphics processing in Vulkan®. To find out exactly what we’re talking about be sure to read part one first.
How do you mix and match rasterisation and compute in a modern GPU? In modern rendering environments, there are a lot of cases where a compute workload is used during a frame. Compute is generic (non-fixed function) parallel programming on the GPU, commonly used for techniques that are either challenging, outright impossible, or simply inefficient to implement with the standard graphics pipeline (vertex/geometry/tessellation/raster/fragment).
The power of silicon hardware has risen dramatically over the years, particularly in GPUs, allowing us to store and display more information on-screen at once. Player expectations have grown even faster, and so texture mapping remains a key technique for increasing the quality and detail of a video game world with minimal power and processing overhead. It is a core factor that enables mobile gaming to match the visual quality of modern desktop hardware. Exploring PVRTexTool and texture mapping has always been a critical technique in improving the visuals of a video game at a low processing cost.
