Interesting point, but we're talking about 100's or 1000's of FLOP's per tile which we avoid if the tile isn't visible. FLOP's chew through a lot of CPU/GPU cycles and therefore power where as I'd imagine it was mostly integer math to determine visibility and only the need to 3 corner points (if they're triangular polygon tiles)

While it seems nice and simple, doesn't it introduce a bit of latency? I could imagine this having issues whith extremely intense and dynamic loads.
