Talk (half slot, Wineconf and FOSS XR only) Main Track

Speaker

Ricardo Garcia (Igalia, S.L.)

Description

This talk will discuss the problems with the traditional vertex processing pipeline and present how mesh shading solves these problems. Instead of processing a fixed set of input vertices, mesh shaders can create an arbitrary topology of vertices and primitives. Mesh shading also includes a new solution for geometry amplification: task shaders.

The talk should be scheduled before Timur's talk about implementing mesh shaders in the RADV Mesa driver.
