Texture Caches

  title={Texture Caches},
  author={Michael C. Doggett},
  journal={IEEE Micro},
This column examines the texture cache, an essential component of modern GPUs that plays an important role in achieving real-time performance when generating realistic images. GPUs have many components and the texture cache is only one of them. But it has a real impact on the performance of the GPU if rasterization and memory tiling are set up correctly.
