Details

I've found that Minefield renders 2d _really_ slowly with d2d enabled on my Windows 7 laptop. I talked to Joe, and he said that we should blacklist the driver.

Not sure if you need them, but the specs are:
Lenovo W500 Laptop
ATI Mobility FireGL V5700
Vendor ID: 1002
Device ID: 9591
Adapter RAM: 512
Adapter Drivers: atiumd64 atidxx64 atiumdag atidxx32 atiumdva atiumd6a atitmm64
Driver Version: 8.641.1.0
Driver Date: 8-24-2009
Direct2D Enabled: false
DirectWrite Enabled: false
GPU Accelerated Windows: 1/1 Direct3D 9

These are the most recent drivers available.
Joe, what makes you think the driver is to blame?
We should blacklist _something_ if it's slower than software. It can be the device.
Bug 623338 creates a min ATI driver version 8.741.0.0 to have HW acceleration available.
Depends on: 623338
