Mesa 12.0.4 Promises 15% Performance Boost for Radeon Users on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (and therefore Peppermint 7)

I've added the PPA and my system seems to run cooler when playing games (dunno about 'performance') .. this is not scientific, nor am I recommending people make the change before it becomes official and appeaas as an update automagically .. simply drawing attention to it, the rest is up to you :)
