Simple Pixel Shader

The Simple Pixel Shader override mode replaces every pixel shader with one that writes a constant color to the render target.

If the frame rate shows a large increase with this override enabled, this is an indicator that the performance slowdown is due to pixel shader computation and/or texture performance. In this case you should inspect your scene with the Intel® GPA Frame Analyzer in order to identify and rework expensive pixel shaders to improve scene rendering performance.
