I'm having a similar issue to this question, only primusrun is still slower even with vblank synchronization disabled.

EDIT: I didn't run standard glxspheres without turning off vblank sychronization. When I do I get

$ vblank_mode=0 glxspheres64

I'm not sure why primus would be running slower. I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 with the experimental 310 drivers.

EDIT: It seems that primusrun is giving no performance boost over the onboard intel graphics.

There's a texture upload speed regression in Mesa 9.2, which is what Ubuntu 13.10 ships with. You can try installing Mesa git packages from oibaf ppa or xorg-edgers ppa, and then try PRIMUS_UPLOAD=2 primusrun (setting PRIMUS_UPLOAD=2 explicitely may be necessary to workaround a regression in mesa git that was fixed only recently).

  • I don't know what you mean by texture upload speed regression. I using the xorg edgers ppa. When I tried setting PRIMUS_UPLOAD=2 the frame rate went down to 40.
