Its not the X server,

it is the Intel driver, which has currently 3 different
acceleration architectures
for distros to choose from.

F20 ships UXA,
F21 ships SNA,
F22 will hopefully ship glamor.

Now I've no idea if this happens with SNA it probably does, but it it
didn't then
F20 is using UXA so hardly anyone at Intel would see it.

So yes its full of surprises, version 3.0 of the Intel DDX has been in
for 2-3 years now I think.
