Hans de Geode has announced the Fedora distribution will be making changes to its Xorg driver for Intel CPUs, starting with the upcoming release of Fedora 26. "A while back Debian has switched to using the modesetting Xorg driver rather then the intel Xorg driver for Intel GPUs. There are several good reasons for this, rather then repeating them I'm just going to point to the Debian announcement. This mail is to let all Fedora users know that starting with Fedora 26/rawhide as of today, we are making the same change. Note that the xorg-x11-drv-intel package has already been carrying a Fedora patch to not bind to the GPU on Skylake or newer, even before Debian announced this, this just makes the same change for older Intel GPUs." People who are using the default Wayland session on Fedora Workstation will not be affected by this change as the adjustment only affects people using the Xorg display server.
