Talking about x11perf on Mach64? It's faster for scrolls and rectcopys but
as fast as the fbdev driver or slightly slower for other stuff. I can send
logs (at 32 bpp) to anyone that cares to analyze them. Switching back to
3.3.x is something I always wanted to do but never found time for, but
even the fbdev driver on 4.01 feels a lot faster than the 3.3.x one.
