Performance is now drastically higher using libdrm 2.4.9 and intel driver 2.7.1 in UXA mode on a GM965 (PPA: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa). Though glxgears is hovering around 600 fps now (see reason: http://qa-rockstar.livejournal.com/7869.html), actual 2D rendering speeds and 3D performance in games are much higher. Games in wine that were previously unplayable in 2.6 or 2.4 are now running at ~30 fps (War3 in opengl mode). UT2004 is around 20 fps (1280x800 res, medium settings). I'm getting speeds that are higher than I would get in windows (using friend's almost identical PC for comparison).
