With the Xonotic first person shooter game we see a boost out of running with Linux 5.0 compared to 4.18. Interestingly as well is the Iris driver performing nearly at parity to the mature i965 driver. The minimum frame-rate was higher than with the i965 driver though the peak frame-rate much less.

As the Xonotic visual settings were ramped up, the Iris Gallium3D driver fell behind the i965 driver but still not too bad for being a first-cut Gallium3D driver. With ultimate quality settings, the Iris Pro Graphics 6200 were at 88% the speed of the i965 driver.

The Iris driver was doing well in the various synthetic OpenGL benchmarks.
