When running Nexuiz on Mesa 9.2-devel for LLVMpipe with LLVM 3.2 and LLVM 3.3, the AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core processor was pushing out just seven frames per second. Though the GeForce GT 520 with the Nouveau driver where there is no re-clocking support for Fermi/Kepler, it was averaging just 8.58 FPS.

For OpenArena 0.8.5 at 1920 x 1080, the LLVMpipe driver was averaging 17.5 FPS, around the same level of performance as the AMD Radeon HD 6450 graphics card on the open-source R600 Gallium3D driver.

The OpenArena 0.8.8 performance is much lower with LLVMpipe.
