Optimize X11 server (Xorg)

From this I learned how to optimize the X11 server.

Create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-intel.conf with the following content:

Section "OutputClass"
   Identifier "intel"
   MatchDriver "i915"
   Driver "intel"
   Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
   Option "TearFree" "true"
   Option "DRI" "3"

When running xsnow, Xorg uses 60-70% cpu without this file. With this file, Xorg uses less then 15%.
