On my system, running mga2, unblacklisting llvmpipe (so as to use 
regular gnome3, instead of classic/fallback mode) makes all display in 
regular gnome3 run extremely slow.
It must be that llvmpipe is used for all display, even when acceleration 
isn't indicated.

BTW, regular gnome3 might well be called "tablet mode".  A lot of 
extensions have been developped to revert to a display more like gnome2.
