While OpenArena is a basic ioquake3 game, it was a surprise to see for this game that Iris Gallium3D already was outperforming the classic stable driver on Mesa 19.0-devel... With correct rendering too, obviously.

Though when pushing the UHD Graphics at 1440p, the classic driver had a slight advantage. But it is interesting to note that the the Gallium3D driver had a peak frame-rate of 72 FPS compared to 64 FPS with the current driver.

The Tesseract performance was similar between the two drivers.

With the ET: Legacy game there still is quite a difference between the two drivers.
