For a research project, I have written a Tessellation Shader to interpolate solution points of a 3-Dimensional mathematical equation. Therefore I don't use any techniques for displacement, I merely use the tessellation hardware to interpolate a lot of data points in parallel. I want to write a paragraph about the potential speed benefits compared with trivial interpolation on a CPU, but I can't find any resources about how fast tessellation is in terms of "generating new points per second" or "subdividing triangles per second". Even more interesting would be "new points per GPU clock cycle". But all resources I find are from the video game perspective talking about FPS-performance, which is useless in my case, because first I tessellate my model only once and second I don't use any displacement techniques which are normally used to increase visual quality but will lower the performance again.
Obviously the performance depends on the actual GPU, but a single data sheet as an anchor point would already help a lot.
