-This work follows Stefan Gustavson's paper "Simplex noise demystified"

-without using uniform arrays or texture engines.

-The resulting noise functions are fast and self contained,
-and their performance scales well with massive parallelism.

+The resulting noise functions are fast and self contained,
+and their performance scales well with massive parallelism.
+While not quite as fast as Gustavson's original implementation
+on typical current desktop GPUs, they are more scalable to
+massive parallelism and much more convenient to use, and
+they can make good use of unused ALU resources when run
+concurrently with a typical texture-intensive rendering.
+Gustavson's implementation makes heavy use of a texture
+lookup table and is texture bandwidth limited.
