The World of Padman improvements were similar to that of OpenArena.

In addition, Urban Terror sees a nice 30% improvement in frame-rate.

Of course, running the graphics card at its highest performance level does cause the heat output (and power consumption) to increase.

Stay tuned for many more Nouveau re-clocking tests soon as the support is working across a wider selection of hardware. For now if you want to give it a shot, do so at your own risk and stay tuned for more updates on Phoronix about the state of Nouveau. There will also be coverage of the Nouveau presentation this weekend in Belgium.
