Phoronix: LLVMpipe's Geometry Processing Pipeline Kicks

A month ago we talked about Gallium3D's LLVMpipe performing well and providing a much better software rasterizer than what is available with classic Mesa. Using LLVMpipe and a modest CPU for acceleration, the OpenArena was just about playable without any GPU assistance. Now a month later LLVMpipe is becoming a even more serious performer. LLVMpipe now is able to tap into the new geometry processing pipeline and it's causing some major performance gains...
