on a little intel tablet that i have, some effects of plasma-mobile are like 
faster than on my desktop with nvidia that is supposed to be n times faster, 
and qgraphicsview renders a) correctly b) fast enough on an opengl widget.
that's what having good driver causes, and reflects the silly situation of the 
drivers for desktop videocards as well.
