Attaching an attempt at testing performance with and without attenuation. Launch `LightingSample`  without the patch or `AttenLightingSample` with the patch. There are 2 modes, one with a single large box and another with many small boxes. Not only is there no difference in performance with and without attenuation, if the lights are turned off (so there is no shader calculation even), there is still no difference. The "single" mode gives ~120 fps, while the "multiple" mode gives ~42 fps and seems to be limited by the number of nodes in the scene rather than anything related to lighting.

Either the calculations for 3 lights is negligible, or the testing is flawed. I tested on Win10 with an RX 470 4GB. Used BandiCam to measure the fps.
