I believe "what happened" for three reasons.

1) The redirect windows option was not clicked for KDE for these tests, so default settings only

2) ATi cards are so much more powerful than the intel's that are usually shown, that the slow down by unity is not seen as easily in them.

3) Wasn't a regression with catalyst shown in KDE recently?

I've not verified any of this, just some ideas.
