EXA(4)                (xorg-server 1.20.11)                EXA(4)

     NAME
          exa - new 2D acceleration architecture for X.Org

     DESCRIPTION
          EXA provides a simple API for video drivers to implement for
          2D acceleration.  It is a module loaded by drivers, and is
          not intended to be loaded on its own.  See your driver's
          manual page for how to enable EXA.

          The EXA architecture is designed to make accelerating the
          Render extension simple and efficient, and results in vari-
          ous performance tradeoffs compared to XAA.  Some xorg.conf
          options are available for debugging performance issues or
          driver rendering problems.  They are not intended for gen-
          eral use.

          Option 34EXANoComposite34 34boolean34
               Disables acceleration of the Composite operation, which
               is at the heart of the Render extension.  Not related
               to the Composite extension.  Default: No.

          Option 34EXANoUploadToScreen34 34boolean34
               Disables acceleration of uploading pixmap data to the
               framebuffer. Default: No.

          Option 34EXANoDownloadFromScreen34 34boolean34
               Disables acceleration of downloading of pixmap data
               from the framebuffer.  NOTE: Not usable with drivers
               which rely on DownloadFromScreen succeeding.  Default:
               No.

          Option 34MigrationHeuristic34 34anystr34
               Chooses an alternate pixmap migration heuristic, for
               debugging purposes.  The default is intended to be the
               best performing one for general use, though others may
               help with specific use cases.  Available options
               include 34always34, 34greedy34, and 34smart34.  Default:
               always.
