Please note: although not listed in the release highlights, this driver release has experimental support for on-demand VBLANK interrupt generation, which can significantly lower the number of GPU interrupts generated per second on many systems. Please see the documenation for the OnDemandVBlankInterrupts X driver option in the README for additional information.
