    Poor preformace with Mesa 18.3 (i965 DRI)

    I play the game Guild Wars 2 on a laptop with Nvidia Optimus technology, using Wine. I have mainly used the integrated Intel GPU though. When Fedora 29 updated the Mesa drivers to version 18.3, the Intel driver's performance dropped dramatically. I had to downgrade to mesa-dri-drivers-18.2.8-1.fc29.x86_64.rpm to be able to play again. Nouveau doesn't seem to be affected, but the game runs worse on it anyway (on Mesa 18.2).

    I'd be interested to know if someone has had similar experiences.

    Mmkay, I didn't wish to talk about gaming but rather the laptop hardware drivers, but whatever floats your boat.
