Stadtpark und Botanischer Garten G├╝tersloh

The Stadtpark und Botanischer Garten Gütersloh is a municipal park with botanical garden located at Parkstraße, Gütersloh, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It open daily without charge; the park was created between 1906 and 1909 to designs by garden architect Friedrich Wilhelm Schoedder, with the botanical garden added to its northeastern corner in 1912. A palm house was constructed in 1938 but destroyed in World War II. A rose garden was created in 1941, followed by a birch grove, mini golf course, herb garden, sculpture garden. Today the park retains its original design, broadly patterned upon an English landscape park, with an elongated axis, wide curving paths and numerous trees, as well as a meadow flooded for ice-skating in the winter; the botanical garden is laid out as a display garden, with geometric pools and high hornbeam hedges. The orchard contains a number of heritage fruit varieties including Westfälischer Gülderling and Schöner aus Wiedenbrück. List of botanical gardens in Germany Matthias E.

TeraScale (microarchitecture)

TeraScale is the codename for a family of graphics processing unit microarchitectures developed by ATI Technologies/AMD and their second microarchitecture implementing the unified shader model following Xenos. TeraScale replaced the old fixed-pipeline microarchitectures and competed directly with Nvidia's first unified shader microarchitecture named Tesla. TeraScale was used in HD 2000 manufactured in 80 nm and 65 nm, HD 3000 manufactured in 65 nm and 55 nm, HD 4000 manufactured in 55 nm and 40 nm, HD 5000 and HD 6000 manufactured in 40 nm. TeraScale was used in the AMD Accelerated Processing Units code-named "Brazos", "Llano", "Trinity" and "Richland". TeraScale is found in some of the succeeding graphics cards brands. TeraScale is a VLIW SIMD architecture, while Tesla is a RISC SIMD architecture, similar to TeraScale's successor Graphics Core Next. TeraScale implements HyperZ. An LLVM code generator is available for TeraScale. E.g. Mesa 3D makes use of it. At SIGGRAPH 08 in December 2008 AMD employee Mike Houston described some of the TeraScale microarchitecture.

At FOSDEM09 Matthias Hopf from AMDs technology partner SUSE Linux presented a slide regarding the programming of open-source driver for the R600. Previous GPU architectures implemented fixed-pipelines, i.e. there were distinct shader processors for each type of shader. TeraScale leverages many flexible shader processors which can be scheduled to process a variety of shader types, thereby increasing GPU throughput; the R600 core processes vertex and pixel shaders as outlined by the Direct3D 10.0 specification for Shader Model 4.0 in addition to full OpenGL 3.0 support. The new unified shader functionality is based upon a long instruction word architecture in which the core executes operations in parallel. A shader cluster is organized into 5 stream processing units; each stream processing unit can retire a finished single precision floating point MAD instruction per clock, dot product, integer ADD. The 5th unit is more complex and can additionally handle special transcendental functions such as sine and cosine.

Each shader cluster can execute 6 instructions per clock cycle, consisting of 5 shading instructions plus 1 branch. Notably, the VLIW architecture brings with it some classic challenges inherent to VLIW designs, namely that of maintaining optimal instruction flow. Additionally, the chip cannot co-issue instructions when one is dependent on the results of the other. Performance of the GPU is dependent on the mixture of instructions being used by the application and how well the real-time compiler in the driver can organize said instructions. R600 core includes 64 shader clusters, while RV610 and RV630 cores have 8 and 24 shader clusters respectively. TeraScale includes multiple units capable of carrying out tessellation; those are similar to the programmable units of the Xenos GPU, used in the Xbox 360. Tessellation was specified in the major API's only starting with DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4, while TeraScale 1 and 2 based GPU's are only conformant to Direct3D 10 and OpenGL 3.3. The TeraScale 3 based GPU's were the first to conform with both Direct3D 11 and OpenGL 4.0, supporting the tesselation feature as de facto.

The TeraScale tessellator units allow the developers to take a simple polygon mesh and subdivide it using a curved surface evaluation function. There are different tessellation forms, such as Bézier surfaces with N-patches, B-splines and NURBS, some subdivision techniques of the surface, which includes displacement map some kind of a texture; this allows a simple, low-polygon model to be increased in polygon density in real-time with small impact on the performance. Scott Wasson of Tech Report noted during an AMD demo that the resulting model was so dense with millions of polygons that it appeared to be solid; the TeraScale tessellator is reminiscent of ATI TruForm, the brand name of an early hardware tessellation unit used in the Radeon 8500. While this tessellation hardware was not part of the OpenGL 3.3 or Direct3D 10.0 requirements, competitors such as the GeForce 8 series lacked similar hardware, Microsoft has added the tessellation feature as part of their DirectX 10.1 future plans. ATI TruForm received little attention from software developers.

A few games, had the support for the ATI's tesselation technology included. Such a slow adaptation has to do with the fact that it was not a feature shared with NVIDIA GPUs, since those had implemented a competing tessellation solution using Quintic-RT patches which had achieved less support from the major game developers. Since the Xbox 360's GPU is based on the ATI's architecture, Microsoft saw the hardware-accelerated surface tessellation as a major GPU feature. A couple of years the tesselation feature became mandatory with the release of the DirectX 11 in 2009. GCN geometric processor is the AMD's most current solution for carrying out the tessellation using the GPU. Although the R600 is a significant departure from previous designs, it still shares many features with its predecessor, the Radeon R520; the Ultra-Threaded Dispatch Processor is a major architectural component of the R600 core, just as it was with the Radeon X1000 GPUs. This processor manages a large number of in-flight threads of three distinct types and switches amongst them as needed.
