The sunshine form mesh vertex count number used for the respective shell passes are forty two and 10, which shows that the pixel shader isn't the bottleneck. This remark is additional bolstered by way of the truth that going from 24 × 12 tiles to forty eight × 24 will yield as much as 4 instances the variety of pixel shader invocations for any variety of triangles, which in flip implies that the consistent time for the shell passes is because of the triangle processing and knowledge move being the bottleneck. Packing info for move among shader levels has given the simplest functionality raises while optimizing the shaders.
