Or see -- KWin did get some serious performance improvements.

Yes, but I have run both KDE 4.7 and KDE 4.8 on a number of systems, and the improvement is there but not as dramatic as the Jack Wallen article paints.

After all, none of the KWin performance improvements that Martin Graesslin blogged about are likely to have anything to do with "stability improvements" ... especially stability improvements which "apply to both KDE and non-KDE applications as well as widgets".

Hence my take ... IMO there is likely to have been a bug-fix for the graphics drivers Jack Wallen's on machine. I am speculating that this is the mostly thing to have simultaneously significantly improved both performance and stability on his machine.
