Disables use of the hardware cursor.
Run the memory at a higher clock. Useful on some cards with
display glitches at higher resolutions. But adds the risk to
damage the hardware. Use with caution.
Set custom ramdac limit. We have currently no way of knowing if
the v2x00 chip is a v2100 (170MHz) or v2200 (203MHz and 230MHz)
so we assume the lowest. Use this option to manually override
If writecombine is disabled in BIOS, and you add this option in
configuration file, then the driver will try to request
writecombined access to the framebuffer. This can drastically
increase the performance on unaccelerated server. Requires that
"MTRR"-support is compiled into the OS-kernel.
Disable probing of DDC-information from your monitor. This
information is not used yet and is only there for informational
purposes. This might have changed before final XFree86 4.0
release. Safe to disable if you experience problems during
startup of X-server.
