Xonotic with high image quality settings yielded a more pronounced frame-rate improvement when enabling Direct Rendering Infrastructure 3.

The DRI3 performance boost carried through for the ultra and ultimate image quality settings in Xonotic.

Furmark also was boosted by DRI3.

...as was the basic triangle test.

The DRI3 change tended to yield the biggest performance boost but aside from that the Linux kernel and Mesa driver code for Broadwell is already quite mature at this stage. You can dig through more of our performance data via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file and by searching Core i7-5775C or Broadwell-U.
