Intel's New OpenGL Driver Is Looking Really Great With The Upcoming Mesa 19.2

In the synthetic GLmark2 benchmark that is common to Linux OpenGL developers, the Gallium3D driver is now faster by about 15%.

ParaView for looking at the workstation OpenGL performance was good in some of the tests, but there does appear to be a significant regression with the wavelet volume performance. I've already alerted Intel to this surprising drop.

When using j2dbench for looking at the performance of the Java OpenGL pipeline, the text rendering performance is substantially better on Gallium3D. With the image and vector rendering tests, the performance was slightly behind the classic driver.
