    Phoronix: Intel Still Working On "Fastboot" Linux Graphics

    While there's been many Linux-related projects using the "Fastboot" coin, the Intel Linux graphics team have been working on Fastboot support in terms of a faster start process by eliminating some useless mode-sets...

      What kind of improvement are we talking about? Is fastboot just about boot times?
      ## VGA ##
      AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
      Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

        Ok, so it boots one millionth of one second faster, but at the expense of "it doesn't turn on your LCD backlight". Totally awesome.

            It tries to get rid of a potential 2s or so delay in the boot time due to panel power sequencing, but can affect other mode sets too, speeding them up if the configurations match.
