Hmm, I did some measurements as well ( previous post... ) and repeating
the same tests on XFree86 4.5 showed a consistent, significant
performance advantage for XFree86. About 10% in low level tests like
line- and font drawing, about 20% in -map.
The driver is the same source-wise, so is the hardware, the compiler
and optimization options.
Xorg 7.0 uses significanly less memory though which kind of outweights
the performance decrease ( ancient sparcbook which maxes out at 64MB )
So, is it just me or has this been observed elsewhere?
