      Does this mean that even the lowly Intel HD3000 would get higher framerates?

            It should actually work with all Mesa drivers, regradless if classic or gallium based. An intel igpu will probably almost always be gpu limited though, so glthread won't help.

              Most likely not. The code will run on that driver, but you won't see any benefit if you're already GPU limited and you most certainly will be with an HD3000.

              Edit: oops, Masush5 beat me to it.
