Graphics functions can be performed by internal graphics components 25 , which include a data stream and dispatch controller 26 to manage the flow of data and various graphics engines 27 to perform graphics operations on data. Retrieved January 4, Views Read Edit View history. Increasingly these functions became integrated into the CPU chip itself, [3] beginning with memory and graphics controllers. Bridge for interconnecting a computer system bus, an expansion bus and a video frame buffer. A computer chip comprising:

The assertion of IRDY for reads indicates that the master is ready to transfer write data. Year of fee payment: Retrieved January 4, RBF the read buffer full signal indicates if the master is ready to accept previously requested low priority read data.

As long as transactions on the independently arbitrated buses do not compete for the common resources, they can proceed in parallel. Method of controlling in real time the switching of modes of parallel operation of a multi-mode parallel graphics processing subsystem embodied within a host computing system.

Local memory interface 22 is de-coupled from the internal graphics core 25 and can be enabled, for example, with frequencies of megahertz MHz and MHz, gmcb may be independent of the graphics core.

Increasingly these functions became integrated into the CPU chip itself, [3] beginning with memory and graphics controllers. The computer system of claim 7 wherein the interface circuitry comprises a cache interface for coupling the graphics subsystem to a local memory through electrical connectors and a controller interface for coupling the computer chip to a graphics controller through the electrical connectors.


Computer system costs also may be reduced comtroller eliminating the peripheral vraphics controller and integrating its functionality into the memory controller. Scheduler and local memory arbiter function together to control the flow of data across local memory interface This application is a continuation application of and claims priority from U.

As CPU speeds increased over time, a bottleneck eventually emerged between the processor and the motherboarddue to limitations caused by data transmission between the Contrller and its support chipset. The master will use the selected mechanism until it is reset and reprogrammed to use the other mode.

Less local memory is required to achieve the same graphics performance, grapuics, if a dedicated bus, e. Method and apparatus for allocating display memory and main memory employing access request arbitration and buffer control. Thus, AGP transactions generally include interleaved access requests and data transfers.

ST signals provide status information from arbiter to the AGP master.

This chip typically gets hotter as processor speed becomes faster, requiring more cooling. Scheduler dispatches AGP non-snoopable requests internally to system memory interface 4 and identifies to AGP interface arbiter the priority in which it should service pending requests and accept new requests.

Scheduler enforces compliance with AGP ordering rules and, along with system memory arbitration logic not shownallows high priority requests to be handled as highest priority events in the system.

In a computer system, a memory controller hub may be integrated with an internal graphics controller and grapgics interface with an external graphics device through an AGP port.

Independent buses and interfaces i. Graphics processing and display systems using multiple graphics core silicon chip monolithic structure. There is a way, says system-level security ace”. The computer grapics of claim 7 wherein the electrical connectors are adapted for use by the cache interface to transfer signals between the graphics subsystem and a local memory and for use by the controller interface to transfer signals between the computer chip and a graphics controller.


However, queuesare modified slightly to handle additional local memory datapaths. January Learn how and when to remove this template message. cojtroller

Other implementations are within the scope of the claims. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Views Read Edit View history. Method and grqphics for deferred texture validation on a multi-tasking computer.

GNT is asserted if read data are pending in the read data return queue or if a write command is received and space is available is the write data queue The master queues one request per rising clock edge while PIPE is asserted. During early Fmch On Self Test POST the system basic input output system BIOS performs various tests of the computer system hardware and software including detecting system memory and basic initialization of hardware vmch software.

Multi-mode parallel graphics rendering and display system supporting real-time detection of scene profile indices programmed within pre-profiled scenes of the graphics-based application.
