1. A method of rendering a scene using a graphics processor comprising:

  • configuring a multithreaded processing unit within the graphics processor to enable processing of samples independent of an order in which the samples are received;

    processing the samples independent of the order in which the samples are received by the multithreaded processing unit to render at least a portion of the scene; and

    configuring the multithreaded processing unit to disable processing of samples independent of an order in which the samples are received to minimize visual artifacts in the rendered scene by preventing the occurrence of position hazards.
