Yes, our own (nonexistant) benchmark. I'm afraid that is the only way.

That's a bit much of an effort, but we can also tests where we have the source 
code available and can modify and recompile it, for example the sdk samples. 
Those aren't benchmarks, but they give us a rough understanding where our 
problems are. Just recompile them with gcc to break potential checksumming by 
the driver, change the filename and run them on windows and wine.

SDK samples aren't suitable for general game benchmarking, and they don't make 
themselves as good for advertisement, but they are helpful for development.
