Has anyone benchmarked performance yet in production environment? Or used it in production yet? We know it's not support yet by CPanel and others but have heard that the performance is big and resource usage is way lower.

Not in production - no. We've done some testing in a development environment and have been happy with the results. I don't have specific numbers to share, but from what we've been able to test on this end, the NGINX is still outperforming Apache for what our clients need. We run a lot of database and PHP intensive tasks, and thus far, we have no plans to replace NGINX with Apache 2.4 in a production environment (unless a client requests it specifically for their VPS or dedicated server)

Are you running pure NGINX with PHP-FPM or using it as just a frontend? I know a well done varnish+apache will out perform LiteSpeed easily.

NGINX, PHP-FPM, PHP-APC.
It's a powerhouse when it comes to serving static pages, so sites like Wordpress with cache's enabled etc, you can really do wonders with the speed. For real-time processing I haven't been able to justify the move as of yet (at least, not when we were testing the other month). Maybe some newer versions have come out?

We also looked into the packaged offer from http://cpnginx.com. It's a great solution for a single site, or maybe a couple that you manage, but for shared hosting, since the .htaccess files all need to get rewritten, it can cause a cluster headache for anyone not familiar with NGNIX --- one of our major reasons not to launch on our regular shared servers.
