Mesa Git Delivering Faster Intel Vulkan Performance, Closer To OpenGL Driver Speed

Here are some more OpenGL benchmark results from different OpenGL Linux games for those wondering how Mesa 13.0 vs. 17.0-dev is comparing on Skylake HD Graphics 530.

Some Linux games are seeing faster Intel Skylake performance with this current Mesa Git code.

That's it for the Intel OpenGL/Vulkan benchmarks I have ready today. Stay tuned for more OpenGL/Vulkan benchmarks as the February release of Mesa 17.0 approaches.
