NV2A/Pixel Combiner
From xboxdevwiki
The NV2A implements at least parts of the following OpenGL extensions:
- NV_texture_shader
- NV_texture_shader2
- NV_texture_shader3^{[citation needed]}
- NV_register_combiners
- NV_register_combiners2
Data types
NV_texture_shader suggests that: "The 8-bit and 16-bit signed fixed-point types are used for signed internal texture formats, while the 9-bit signed fixed-point type is used for register combiners computations." Here is a table from the GL extension:
floating-point | 8-bit fixed-point | 9-bit fixed-point | 16-bit fixed-point |
---|---|---|---|
1.0 | n/a | 255 | n/a |
0.99996... | n/a | n/a | 32767 |
0.99218... | 127 | n/a | n/a |
0.0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |
-1.0 | -128 | -255 | -32768 |
-1.00392... | n/a | -256 | n/a |
This means:
- 8-bit fixed-point: [-128, 127] → [-128/128, 127/128] → [-1.0, 0.99218...]
- 9-bit fixed-point: [-256, 255] → [-256/255, 255/255] → [-1.00392..., 1.0]
- 16-bit fixed-point: [-32768, 32767] → [-32768/32768, 32767/32768] → [-1.0, 0.99996...]
It is not known if the NV2A really implements these 3 datatypes. It is also not yet known how exactly conversion or negation of these types would work.
