Wayland beats the hell out of Xorg in GPU test
this test is done using compositing as there is no compositing bypass for Xwayland as of yet i'm not posting the test on the steam forums but i did post the Link and a Little info on it

"mannerov"
"Since there isn't sync support right now, XWayland doesn't bypass X compositing (whereas the applications could because they are fullscreen).
There is a copy and that explains the lower performance than on bare X.

The way to avoid the copy would be reenabled, when sync to the frame Wayland display is implemented. (and then performance would be the same than on X)."
