4.9.2. Moving operations from the geometry processor to the pixel processor

If you application is geometry processor bound and it uses a lot of geometry for detail, then you might be able to reduce it by using techniques that make surfaces appear more detailed than they really are. For example, normal maps are textures that represent surface normals. Shaders use them to give the impression of more surface detail without increasing the number of triangles.
