sampler - Specifies the sampler to which the texture from which texels will be retrieved is bound.
P - Specifies the texture coordinates at which texture will be sampled.
dPdx - Specifies the partial derivative of P with respect to window x.
dPdy - Specifies the partial derivative of P with respect to window y.


 textureGrad performs a texture lookup at coordinate P from the texture bound to sampler with explicit texture coordinate gradiends as specified in dPdx and dPdy . Set:







For the cube version, the partial derivatives of P are assumed to be in the coordinate system used before texture coordinates are projected onto the appropriate cube face.
