There's been a lot of development with regard to Intel's new
UXA acceleration framework for its GMA integrated graphics chips.
Benchmarks over at Phoronix have shown mixed results, so I decided to
run some tests myself.
Tests run on an Asus Eee PC 900HA, with a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor and integrated GMA 950 graphics, gtkperf 0.40, default Debian kernel 2.6.30, Xorg 1.6.2, and Intel driver 2.7.1. (i.e., an up to date unstable installation.)
