That test is wrong.  You don't compare different drivers on different 
distros.  You compare them on the same distro.  Now I get to say that 
it's not the driver that is slower, but it's the newer Ubuntu version 
that slows it down.

They should learn to benchmark :P  And they should learn to also name 
the benchmarks appropriately (that it compares performance of two Ubuntu 
versions rather than Intel driver versions.)
