sounds not really smart if you are using the integrated graphics
engine as only graphics card which is fast enough for KDE4 3D
effects and all the things you need if you are not a gamer :-)


If you encounter issues with graphics devices, you can try adding
option intel_iommu=igfx_off to turn off the integrated graphics engine.
If this fixes anything, please ensure you file a bug reporting the problem.
