    Default Intel Sandy Bridge Looks Good On Mesa 9.1

    Phoronix: Intel Sandy Bridge Looks Good On Mesa 9.1

    Last week I delivered benchmarks showing Mesa 9.1 delivers faster Intel OpenGL graphics. The benchmarks in that article were carried out on an Intel Core i7 "Ivy Bridge" system with HD 4000 graphics while since then there have been many requests to have similar tests done on a previous-generation Sandy Bridge system. As a result of those requests, here are benchmarks of an Intel Core i5 "Sandy Bridge" processor with Intel HD 3000 graphics as the Mesa 9.1 performance is compared to the earlier 9.0.2, 8.0.5, and 7.11.2 branches.

    i dont know about you, but my professor would rip of the skin from me while fully concious for comparing things with different settings... cant you get rid of the AA options? or have both, to track AA improvements if made?

    The numbers are good but the screen remind me every second there is something very wrong,
    I'm not really sure theses numbers have any real values when the tearing problem doesn't appear to be solved.

    Tearing and performance are not the same thing. You can solve one without solving second.

    And tearing is probably way more complex, than mild performance optimization.

    Nexuiz is slower since Mesa 8.0.5 due to multi-sample anti-aliasing (MSAA) having been implemented for Intel Sandy Bridge by Mesa 9.0.
    I read this in every article about Intel and wonder: can you not turn off MSAA to get an accurate performance comparison?
