  • The TORCS Racing Car Simulator Should Now Be Slightly Faster With Gallium3D
    For those playing TORCS, The Open Racing Simulator, its performance for this driving game simulator should be slightly faster if using one of Mesa's Gallium3D drivers.

Long story short, Marek concluded his commit message by mentioned, "torcs is 2% faster between the previous patch and the end of this series." Every little bit counts in making the open-source driver stack more competitive. With this being in the vendor-neutral Mesa state tracker code, it should presumably also help the Nouveau driver too, in addition to RadeonSI/R600g.
