    Hi everyone!
    Does somebody of you has experience with creating procedural geometry on the GPU? I am trying to generate terrain and want to avoid the CPU bottleneck by generating the geometry in a compute shader. But I'm curious about this given that Geometry Shaders seem to be very slow and aren't recommended for large sets of geometry.
