    Marek Olk continues to work on Mesa/Gallium3D performance improvements. Marek's latest work is on implementing a-synchronous SwapBuffers and to allow for thread offloading of SwapBuffers via a new DRI2 extension to the libGL-Mesa interface...

    Problems or currently imperfect code aside, here's a big thank you to Marek for continuing his work

    The patches don't improve anything, because there is no driver support. First it must be accepted before I send the rest.

    One of the intel guys recently committed a patch that speeds up Minecraft by 15% i think.

    It looked like common code, so i expect it might help the faster hardware like radeon even more.
