Intel Driver for using Graphics Acceleration


Hi All,
Does anyone know what all graphics functionality does Intel's i915 graphics driver support?( blending,blitting ).By looking at the source code it appears to me that it support just 'fill rectangle' and 'image blitting'.Is that all?

It's exceptionally crap.
The m$ emails 'discovered' in court revealed that m$ wanted the i915 off motherboards altogether before they released vista. They invented a workaround:
Vista Ready pcs = pcs that might run vista without grinding to a halt
Vista Capable pcs = Vista incapable pcs (The vast majority of pcs at the time), including all i915 based boards
