I have two laptops, one of which runs on the Intel GMA 965/X3100, and another
running on Sandy Bridge graphics. I can safely say that under both of these
conditions, in no case is Mutter faster than Unity. It's probably an issue of
perception and bad press floating around, which can possibly stem from Compiz
being that much more customizable than Mutter.

Kind regards,
