Not if you count "not running" as 0fps and running at all as something larger than 0 ;>

I think the coolest feature of geometry shaders is layered rendering and it has a lot of applications. Layered rendering means rendering to several texture layers (slices of a 3D texture, faces of a cubemap) or viewports at once, that is with only one DrawElements call. The geometry shaders can choose/change the layer or viewport before emitting a new primitive. (BTW the viewport selection is provided by a separate extension)
