Intel

First of all a link to the detailed Archwiki:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Intel_graphics

Since Intel provides and supports open source drivers, Intel graphics are essentially plug-and-play.

That’s why it is recommend not installing the xf86-video-intel driver, and instead falling back on the modesetting driver for Gen4 and newer GPUs (GMA 3000 from 2006 and newer). See [1], [2]

EndeavourOS is installing this xf86 driver per default, to be compatible for all devices per default, but as mentioned below it is may better to uninstall it for better performance.

There are a huge amount of different hardware for intel gpu chipsets, so if you have an issue it is highly recommended to research for you specific chipset and consult the archwiki for information on different hardware.
