Accelerated-X is a proprietary port of the X Window System to Intel x86 machines.
The Accelerated-X server is built on top of the X386 X server that was created by Thomas Roell for X11 Release 5. He founded a company in Colorado named Xi Graphics which still provides the Accelerated-X server. A bizarre series of events during 2011 contributed to the suspension of the SW development and most licensing activities. They are now currently in progress of resuming and expanding their normal activities.
It used to provide much better driver support (hardware acceleration, 3D and compatibility, especially on integrated graphics) than XFree86, at a time when the major graphics chipset vendors were not supporting Linux officially.
