Your mileage may vary. Especially depending on your hardware generation.
For example, I have fewer graphics-related problems with the Radeon 6670 in this workstation than I do with the Ivy Bridge-class Intel thingey in my work laptop, using Gnome-shell and other such desktop tasks. And the former runs circles around the latter, despite the latter's significant CPU performance advantage.
Identical kernel/software/etc on both.
