Advanced Rendering Techniques and Code Samples GPU Pro 7

MSAA provides a neat way to reduce pixel shading without sacrificing image quality. Recently, researchers at Intel came up a with a technique called Coarse Pixel Shading that works like MSAA, Andrew Lauritzen at Intel, had come up with a clever way a few years ago to enable MSAA and deferred shading. We extended his ideas to enable Coarse Pixel Shading in the deferred rendering set-up. With our...

Deferred Rendering for Current and Future Rendering Pipelines

This sample demonstrates a number of deferred rendering techniques including conventional deferred shading, deferred lighting and tile-based deferred shading. Tile-based deferred shading is implemented in DirectX 11 Compute Shader and achieves high performance even with many lights by amortizing the light culling overhead over screen tiles as well as grouping lights to avoid wasting memory...
