Title: RECORDING THE RESULTS OF VISIBILITY TESTS AT THE INPUT GEOMETRY OBJECT GRANULARITY
Abstract:
According to some embodiments of the present invention, pixel throughput may be improved by performing depth tests and recording the results on the granularity of an input geometry object. An input geometry object is any object within the depiction represented by a primitive, such as a triangle within an input triangle list or a patch within an input patch list.
