Graphics Performance

A significant issue for me is the performance of the graphics display on 
the FR. I recall some discussions a while back about making use of the 
XGlamo acceleration features. Has any progress been made here? It 
appears to me that the graphics performance on the FR is poor compared 
to, for instance, the iPhone or iTouch, both of which have slower CPUs. 
When applications running on the FR have their X output routed to a 
machine with accelerated graphics, it is apparent that the FR processor 
can deliver the X events fast enough, but the FR graphics chip interface 
can't keep up.
