Another Phoronix article that only exists to have the buzzwords "Benchmark" and "Ubuntu 12.10" in the title to get page hits from Ubuntards, without actually delivering any usable information in the article.
I can see your frustration, however: I want to continue upgrading my nouveau-driver anyway, so when it comes to choosing between 12.04 and 12.10 it is not relevant(to me) where the performance drop comes from.
