When beginning with the Nexuiz tests, the latest Gallium3D (via the "R300g" driver) performance is actually regressed compared to the Ubuntu 10.10 stock performance atop Mesa 7.9. The performance with the latest Git components is just a bit above a third of the performance of the Catalyst driver from early 2009.

With Nexuiz at the ThinkPad's native resolution, the performance is actually best on the Ubuntu 10.10 stock installation where it beat out the Catalyst 9.3 driver by a frame and a half, but regardless Nexuiz on the Mobility Radeon X1400 was far too slow with any software configuration.
