Understanding PowerVR Series5XT: Multithreading, multitasking ALUs, the MicroKernel and core scalability

          

A unified architecture means that the ALUs (Arithmetic Logic Units – the bits of the hardware that do all the number crunching as part of shader or compute program processing) are generic and not dedicated to specific processing tasks. This type of ‘universal (or unified) shading’ approach is unanimously recognised as the most efficient. Unified […]
