With the disk benchmarks there wasn't any noticeable change with 4.5-rc1 over 4.4. Then again, no performance changes were really expected for EXT4 with Linux 4.5 as that pull request came down to bug fixing.

No OpenGL performance changes to note with Linux 4.5 for this FirePro V7900 Cayman graphics card, which is hardly surprising since this graphics card is already several years old and AMD's open-source developers have mostly been busy with working on the AMDGPU kernel driver for the newer GCN GPUs.
