"You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."

This is the slide deck from my GDC 2014 talk titled "Low-level Shader Optimization for Next-Gen and DX11". This talk continues on my GDC 2013 talk "Low-Level Thinking in High-Level Shading Languages", showing low-level optimization tricks for DX11 level hardware, and GCN architecture in particular.
