Urban Terror managed just 16 FPS at 1920 x 1080 for the Gallium3D LLVMpipe driver.

Warsow with a resolution of just 1280 x 1024 was pushing out nine frames per second.

When increasing the resolution to 1920 x 1080, LLVMpipe was still pushing out nine frames per second.

Lastly, VDrift was averaging 12 FPS on this open-source software fallback driver. LLVM 3.2 still had no positive or negative impact on the LLVMpipe driver performance for this latest-generation AMD hardware.
