From the 23 test results shared today looking at the performance of Red Hat's Fedora between the Fedora 9 release back in May of 2008 and the release of Fedora 11 along with the daily-updated Rawhide code, for the most part Fedora 11 is performing well ahead of its earlier versions.
The Intel Mesa driver is running faster and so is the 2D DDX driver too now that some of the fallout from the switch to the Graphics Execution Manager, UXA, and DRI2 is being addressed. Where there seems to be some active problems, however, is with the Apache performance in Rawhide, C-Ray running slightly slower since Fedora 11 (though at the same time POV-Ray is running faster), dcraw running somewhat slower in Rawhide, and the SQLite performance regression not being addressed in Fedora 11.
