Along with finally delivering Intel Gallium3D driver benchmarks comparing this unofficial, proof-of-concept i915/945 Gallium3D driver to Intel's official classic Mesa driver, there's also our benchmarks of the EXT4 and Btrfs file-systems from the Linux 2.6.38 kernel.

This is the result file for tests of EXT4 and Btrfs from the Linux 2.6.35, 2.6.37, and 2.6.38-rc6 kernels. Testing was with a System76 Serval Professional notebook with an Intel Quad-Core Sandy Bridge Mobile CPU, 8GB of RAM, 80GB Intel SSD, NVIDIA graphics, and much more.
