1. A method for performing shader operations, the method comprising:
performing pixel shading at a shading rate defined by pixel shader variable rate shading (“VRS”) data; and
updating the pixel shader VRS data that indicates one or more shading rates for one or more tiles based on whether the one or more tiles include triangle edges or do not include triangle edges, to generate updated pixel shader VRS data.
