    Phoronix: Intel Developer Posts Latest Patch For Variable Refresh Rate Within X.Org Modesetting

    With Intel supporting Adaptive-Sync/VRR with Gen11+ graphics and these days with effectively only supporting xf86-video-modesetting for X.Org-driven Linux desktops rather than their basically dead xf86-video-intel driver, the Intel open-source Linux developers continue working on plumbing variable refresh rate support into this generic modesetting DDX...

        I'm waiting as well for VRR support on Wayland. But the generic modesetting driver seems like a start!

              Is HDMI supported for Intel? Because AMD has not added (yet) any support for HDMI VRR, only DisplayPort.

                    HDMI VRR is only supported on HDMI port 2.1 and above, so if the hardware supports it, then the driver work will be done to support it on hardware.
