Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 29 December 2012. Page 4 of 4. 9 Comments

There wasn't much to gather out of the Qfusion-powered Warsow game on this newest Mesa driver code for NVIDIA hardware.

Lastly, for the demanding Xonotic game, the GeForce 9500GT and 9800GT saw no change in performance out of the new Mesa/Nouveau user-space code. The GeForce GT 220, meanwhile, continued to show modestly higher frame-rates with the Mesa/Gallium3D code that's still presently under development.

Expect many more Mesa/Gallium3D benchmarks in early 2013.
