Do you have some e.g. wiki page where this status info is collected?

So far the data provided in this thread is following:

Improves performance:
* Borderlands 2 (with multiple game gfx settings & driver/HW?)

Regresses performance:
* Shadow of Mordor (with multiple game gfx settings & driver/HW?)
* PCSX2 emulator

* glmark2 (one test? all tests?  both GL & GLES version?)
* fgl_glxgears

Glmark & glxgears are rather simple, so it's just a bit surprising.
