Subject: [PATCH 22/30] drm/i915: Use the LLC mode on gen6 for everything but display.
Date: Tue, 12 Apr 2011 21:31:50 +0100
Message-ID: <1302640318-23165-23-git-send-email-chris@chris-wilson.co.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1302640318-23165-1-git-send-email-chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>

From: Eric Anholt <eric@anholt.net>

Improves full-screen openarena on my laptop 20.3% +/- 4.0% (n=3)
Improves 800x600 nexuiz on my laptop 12.3% +/- 0.1% (n=3)

We have more room to improve with doing LLC caching for display using
GFDT, and in doing LLC+MLC caching, but this was an easy performance
win and incremental improvement toward those two.
