    Is this intended behavior for the graphics on this chip? I thought SNA was the preferred method for acceleration on intel? I can force it through an xorg conf file but I don't know which is correct? I used the installer for Fedora but it didn't install anything so I assume the stack was already up to date?

    edit: Well I suppose this is the default behavior of the Q2 driver stack? I installed Ubuntu with the Edgers PPA which I assumed installed a newer version of the stack and SNA seems to be enabled by default. I don't understand why other distros or Intel's own installer would not have the Q3 stack if it came out in September?
