This disclosure describes techniques for using bounding regions to perform tile-based rendering with a graphics processing unit (gpu) that supports an on-chip, tessellation-enabled graphics rendering pipeline. Instead of generating binning data based on rasterized versions of the actual primitives to be rendered, the techniques of this disclosure may generate binning data based on a bounding region that encompasses one or more of the primitives to be rendered.

Hidden surface removal in graphics processing systems
In a graphics processing pipeline 1, a primitive depth sorting stage 9 is arranged prior to the rasterisation stage 3 and rendering stage 6. The primitive depth sorting stage 9 operates to sort successive sub-sets of primitives in a stream of primitives 2 received by the graphics processing pipeline 1 based on their depth values.

Conservative rasterization of primitives using an error term
A system, method, and computer program product are provided for conservative rasterization of primitives using an error term. In use, an edge equation is determined for each edge of a primitive, the edge equation having coefficients defining the edge of the primitive.

Handling post-z coverage data in raster operations
Techniques are disclosed for storing post-z coverage data in a render target. A color raster operations (crop) unit receives a coverage mask associated with a portion of a graphics primitive, where the graphics primitive intersects a pixel that includes a multiple samples, and the portion covers at least one sample.
