The first test up was OpenArena and the results aren't too much of a surprise except for seeing the poor performance of Haswell's HD Graphics 4600. The Haswell HD Graphics 4600 numbers appeared rather low compared to usual for the Linux 3.14 kernel and Mesa 10.2-devel, which may warrant further investigation. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 and GTX 760 numbers were also extremely low, but that's expected as the Nouveau driver doesn't have proper re-clocking support. The open-source AMD results were in order with the higher-end graphics cards in OpenArena starting to run into a CPU bottleneck at this HD resolution.

The Intel Haswell graphics performance remained a bit lower than anticipated low when running Warsow, but at least the integrated graphics were running better than the severely crippled GeForce GTX 460 "Fermi" graphics cards on Nouveau.

Xonotic with high image quality settings showed the numbers closer in line with expectations given the constraints of Nouveau.
