Is it a synonym for a pixel?

Thanks in advance for your help.

From the Red Book's glossary:

fragment

Fragments are generated by the rasterization of the primitives. Each fragment corresponds to a single pixel and includes color, depth, and sometimes texture-coordinate values.


Hope that helps.
