??? Why do you think so ? Some things are missing from their press release, 
surely, but this is a press release, not an in-depth overview (in "Tom's 
Hardware" style).
They are using SciTech's SNAP binary drivers, and SciTech did a great job - 
I've installed SNAP beta, to give a look - and they are quite snappier (pun, 
yes). Basically, you could check SciTech's site to have more accurate 
benchmarking results, and I will not rule out possibility that rocklyte has 
actually improved overall 2d subsystem performance even further. After all, 
this isn't impossible.
What's even better (although probably off topic here) - they managed to 
produce _consistant_ UI.

I have a feeling that this conclusion isn't thoroughly thought out :-)
