In particular, data were analyzed to determine whether the effect of distraction was to disrupt visual scanning, increasing the probability that observers would fail to fixate the changing region of an image, or to degrade the attentive encoding and transfer of foveated visual information into memory.
Foveated rendering could also avoid heat build up and component wear.
In comparison to the Mali-G71, the G72 offers an improvement of 25 percent in power efficiency, a 17 percent ML efficiency gain, and 20 percent better area efficiency, and also includes improved support for mobile multiview systems, multisampling anti-aliasing, foveated rendering and Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC), which is used to increase image compression quality in order to save power.
Another potential application can be foveated rendering which enables high-density displays to selectively choose areas of the screen to display images at higher resolution based on where the focus actually is on the display.
If the eye movement does not reach the same angular velocity as the object, it cannot be foveated, and its image blurs.
