CONFIG_DRM_I915: Intel 8xx/9xx/G3x/G4x/HD Graphics

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_DRM_I915 has multiple definitions:

Intel 8xx/9xx/G3x/G4x/HD Graphics found in drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_DRM_I915:

Help text

Choose this option if you have a system that has "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator" or "HD Graphics" integrated graphics, including 830M, 845G, 852GM, 855GM, 865G, 915G, 945G, 965G, G35, G41, G43, G45 chipsets and Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 as well as Atom CPUs with integrated graphics. If M is selected, the module will be called i915. AGP support is required for this driver to work. This driver is used by the Intel driver in X.org 6.8 and XFree86 4.4 and above. It replaces the older i830 module that supported a subset of the hardware in older X.org releases.

Note that the older i810/i815 chipsets require the use of the i810 driver instead, and the Atom z5xx series has an entirely different implementation.
