Marek Olšák of AMD has been working on some Gallium3D optimizations for boosting the performance of the popular BioShock Infinite game on Linux.

Marek has been working on some optimizations for lowering the pb_cache overhead within the Gallium code and then finishing up with some tweaks to the Radeon and AMDGPU winsys code as well.

From the comments on this patch series, it sounds like the game should now be a couple percent faster when using the open-source driver stack.
