If you're interested in doing performance work though, I'd argue it
would be more interesting to try to close the gap for those cases
where DXVK is currently faster than wined3d. It's great that DXVK is
working so well for some people, but it's also ultimately a dead end.

On the subject of PBA, I'm not aware of a more recent rebase, although
that doesn't necessarily mean there doesn't exist one. Matteo has a
set of patches using a somewhat similar approach that you may find
interesting though. Those aren't publicly available, but he may be
willing to let you have a look if you ask nicely.
