a Q & A is going on now on the phoronix Fourms and the Wayland Developers claim it is going to be even faster then Xorg it's going to make the Linux vs Windows Gap greater

Or will there be next to no difference from the current situation?
Gaming under Wayland should be better than X in terms of performance, even gaming under XWayland should be better than stock X because we're taking out round-trips and "Workaround" code. Input lag I expect to better as well since its simplification of the stack. Gamepad support I'm not sure about honestly, it might come down to pure and simple kernel driver support.
