Abstract

An embodiment of an electronic processing system may include an application processor, persistent storage media communicatively coupled to the application processor, a graphics subsystem communicatively coupled to the application processor, a sense engine communicatively coupled to the graphics subsystem to provide sensed information, a focus engine communicatively coupled to the sense engine and the graphics subsystem to provide focus information, a motion engine communicatively coupled to the sense engine, the focus engine, and the graphics subsystem to provide motion information, and a motion biased foveated renderer communicatively coupled to the motion engine, the focus engine, the sense engine to adjust one or more parameters of the graphics subsystem based on one or more of the sense information, the focus information, and the motion information. Other embodiments are disclosed and claimed.

Background

Current parallel graphics data processing includes systems and methods developed to perform specific operations on graphics data such as, for example, linear interpolation, tessellation, rasterization, texture mapping, depth testing, etc. Traditionally, graphics processors used fixed function computational units to process graphics data; however, more recently, portions of graphics processors have been made programmable, enabling such processors to support a wider variety of operations for processing vertex and fragment data.

Fovea may refer to a small depression in the retina of the eye where visual acuity may be highest. The center of the field of vision may be focused in this region, where retinal cones may be particularly concentrated. In the context of some graphics applications, a fovea or a foveated area may correspond to an area of focus in an image or display.
