It is an option in the Intel Xorg driver. What is actually used depends
on the options provided to the configure script during build time. You
can see the current state in nur Xorg.0.log.

Here is an example of /etc/X11/xorg.conf which enforces SNA:

Section "Device"
        Option     "AccelMethod" "SNA"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "intel"
