Re: [opensuse-factory] [TW] Graphics glitches (HD530)

Obviously it is (8086191B), else it wouldn't use the modesetting one :)

The question rather was has that always been the case or/and has the ranking
of modesetting vs. intel changed lately? Probably not,
rpm -q --changelog xorg-x11-server lists

* Sun May 08 2016 eich@xxxxxxxx
- modesetting.ids:
Add file for PCI IDs of ASICs which the modesetting rather
than the native driver should be used for.
This includes all Intel Gen9+ hardware (boo#978954).

as last relevant change...

That same changelog has a March 17 entry pointing to
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1021803
that looks suspiciously like a possible cause of which your OP complained:

"graphics glitches...show up as horizontal (short) bars on
fast-changing features".
