    Triangle processing is a critical operation in the design of processors for computer graphics and virtual reality applications.
    In this session the author will provide an overview of a hardware graphics pipeline suitable to support a OpenGL library and will present some design techniques for facilitating the rendering process.
    Topics include:
    • A triangle rasterizing technique that is efficient for both large triangles and small triangles.
    • A method of designing FIFOs that allows the reuse sequences of data multiple times before discarding them from the FIFO, which enables reusing the same vertex data multiple times during the primitive assembly, clipping and rasterizing phase.
    • A way of determining the starting point from which to start rasterizing a triangle.
    • A SIMD processor implementation capable of performing multiple threads of shader programs with the ability to perform scalar and vector operations.

    Takeaway

    Engineers will learn a new method of designing FIFOs when data inside the FIFOs needs to be used multiple times,
    a method of rasterizing triangles that is efficient for large triangles and small triangles, a method to find the starting point of rasterization which does not require the computation of a reciprocal a method of implementing a SIMD multi-threaded processor which is efficient for scalar data types and vector data types.
