Opera 10.53 makes IE9 p2 look bad?

Accompanying movie was released (wmv, mp4) which compares it to Firefox and Chrome to show how effective IE9's hardware acceleration is. But is it really so much better than every other browser? Let's try some demos made by Microsoft in this other browser that MS forgot to test with.
(also see notes below)
Note: Both IE's and Opera's frame rate were affected by a large margin by Fraps. Real FPS, without capturing, was roughly twice as big in Flickr Explorer for example.
Just draw your own conclusions and imagine what Opera will achieve will hardware acceleration if it performs very similar to hardware accelerated IE now.
Also, IE team, what's up with using non-official Opera logo? Here, pick up new, shiny one.
