142 <title>Glamor Acceleration</title>
143
144 <para>
145 Glamor is an acceleration library which uses cards' 3D capabilities
146 to accelerate 2D rendering. Glamor acceleration is enabled by default
147 for the new <quote>Maxwell</quote> GPU's. According to the
148 documentation, Glamor acceleration can be used with other chips as
149 well, but that does not seem functional yet.

153 If you want anyway to try to enable Glamor for GPU's other than the new
154 <quote>Maxwell</quote> ones, create the following file as
