Faster performance for xorg-edgers ppa on Ubuntu?
I noticed that performance of the Mesa drivers from the xorg-edgers ppa for Ubuntu has increased quite a bit. Does anyone have any idea why? Shadowgrounds seems to run a lot smoother now. I'm actually using the Radeon HD6520G and I'm surprised that it's running this smoothly (although the game is not running at full resolution and detail).
Probably part of the 2D tiling work that landed recently. You have to manually enable it for render targets and scanout (Option "ColorTiling2D") for compatibility with older mesas, but it's enabled by default for textures.
