Which one has better performance?
The Intel driver inside the kernel or the driver from the intel website?
I have the fourth generation intel graphics card from the table here ---> http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Intel

And if the driver from the intel website is better, how do i install the driver into my kernel?

The Intel driver has two parts, kernel part and Xorg part. I do believe Intel has Xorg driver on their website, do they have the KMS driver also?
