Optimizing GPU occupancy and resource usage with large thread groups

When using a compute shader, it is important to consider the impact of thread group size on performance. Limited register space, memory latency and SIMD occupancy each affect shader performance in different ways. This article discusses potential performance issues, and techniques and optimizations that can dramatically increase performance if correctly applied.
