Bug detailed description:
Synmark2_V6.0_OglDrvCtx performance reduced ~15% on IVB/BYT-M/HSW, this issue doesn't exist on BDW, The problem exists both on gnome-session and Raw X.
It’s Mesa regression, bisecting show that the first bad commit is:

i965: Implement fast color clears using meta operations

Reproduce steps:
1.   xinit&
2.  ./synmark2 OglDrvCtx
Comment 1 Eero Tamminen 2014-08-20 13:54:22 UTC
OglDrvCtx test is CPU bound, high FPS test that on every frame tears down the GL context and redos it (re-compiles shaders etc, it doesn't use textures though).  

I.e. it tests things affecting GL program startup speed, I don't think issues there are high major (unless perf changes are significant without having noticeable benefits elsewhere).

The fast clear fix in early September didn't help this?

(Adding dependency to bug 84501 as it can hide the effect of this.)
Comment 4 shuo.wang 2014-11-26 02:56:06 UTC
This bug is also exist on Mesa10.4RC1
Comment 5 zhipeng.Zheng 2014-11-28 02:22:18 UTC
Verify on IVB/BYT-M/HSW,
Synmark2_V6.0(OglDrvCtx) performance rising ~40%,in Nov 26,and compare with Aug 16
but this bug is still exist on Mesa10.4RC1  ,so keep bug open
Comment 6 Kenneth Graunke 2017-09-14 22:31:39 UTC
Sounds like this was fixed a long time ago, but never landed in Mesa 10.4.  That's long since EOL'd, so marking fixed.
