Nice set of benchmarks Michael.
detail checking aside (though, at casual glance, they do look right), what the published results aptly demonstrate, in respect to that for a large number of games, is where the performance limiting facet lies ... i.e. it ain't the processor

Ie, the Iris Pro will hopefully get a lot better once the cache is working.
Yeah, just checked earlier phoronix bench. It was comparison between mesa 9.1 vs 9.3dev and this test was run on mesa 9.2.

Does the Galago battery provide power consumption info? I hope to see power consumption details in your review.
intel is very expensive for what it gives, I prefer amd cpu + nvidia mid range card.
Intel Iris Pro 5200 does not compare to Discrete GPGPUs. Not by a long shot. Never will they ever touch Nvidia or AMD.
With the growth of HSA I'll always prefer FX processors with a GPGPU [the Steamroller/Excavator architecture moving forward] over anything Intel hobbles together.
