Not the OP, but with a similar issue.  I'm using EXA on kde3 and it works 
well -- very little slowdown at all.  On kde4, rather different, MUCH 
slower.  Of course I had tried XAA long time ago, and it's DEFINITELY 
slower, but that's not the issue here.  (And I'm on Radeon and UXA is 
Intel-only ATM so that's not an option available to try.)

BTW in a different thread I mentioned that I didn't know whether it was 
plasma or kwin4 that was the problem.  Well, I'm running kwin4 now on my 
base kde3 desktop, and it seems to be fine, so what's dragging everything 
down is likely plasma, or a bad interaction between two kde4 components.  
I'll have to try switching out kdesktop and kicker for plasma, next, 
switching back to kwin3, and see how that works...
