Yes, the CVS drivers are faster (AIUI).

The difference (empirically) appears to be more noticeable on machines
which have slow CPUs, and hence tend to be CPU bound (like mine which
is a K6-2 500, which has very poor FP performance compared to a PII of 
similar speed).

Note that Mercury has made apt-able DRI cvs debs of X; these were
announced to this list as well as debian-x, and I'm using them
successfully here.
