Intel Ironlake In 2011 Had Some Gains, Some Losses
When running these quarterly tests with the Intel Sandy Bridge hardware, there was a pop in performance with the 2011Q4 package. However, since the end of 2010, the graphics as found on the previous-generation Arrandale/Clarkdale processors is flat-lined.
When running OpenArena at 1280 x 1024 rather than 1920 x 1080, there is a few-frame improvement in 2011, but a significant performance drop happened in the latest Git code as of December. Hopefully this will be addressed by the Mesa 8.0 release.
