A collection of attachments and associated state for the graphics output of the rendering commands.
A parallel rendering command encoder object.
In some cases, your app’s performance can be limited by the single-CPU workload of encoding commands for a single rendering pass. However, attempting to circumvent this bottleneck by separating the workload into multiple rendering passes encoded on multiple CPU threads can also adversely impact performance, because each rendering pass requires its own intermediate attachment store and load actions to preserve the render target contents.
MTLParallel to create multiple independent
MTLRender objects that encode rendering commands for the same render pass. The parallel render command encoder ensures that the attachment load and store actions occur only at the start and end of the entire rendering pass, not at the start and end of each subordinate render command encoder’s set of commands.
