Intel Works On Intermediate Pixel Storage
Phoronix: Intel Works On Intermediate Pixel Storage
A new feature being worked on for the Intel DRM Linux kernel graphics driver is IPS. Short for Intermediate Pixel Storage, this feature should allow modern Intel HD graphics cores to let the CPU enter deeper PC states to increase power-savings...
Looks like it'll never work for me. My Xorg.0.log shows that my display is on a LVDS port and the video format is 4:4:4--assuming I'm reading the right bits. The framebuffer is 8:8:8 if that's any consolation.
You would notice if your video format is 4:4:4, that's 48 colors or in layman terms stone-age.
