WB feels significantly faster with CGX-AGA than without, but it is probably doubtful whether it will do anything for your games, since it still can't exceed AGA speed. I'm guessing it just improves the API between WB and AGA and has optimized methods for moving a window etc.? If they have some really clever optimizations it might help, but otherwise it is just adding another layer as you write, which usually does not help on speed.
