    Well those are oldstable backports. There is no newer intel xorg driver in stable backports as yet.

    It's not too hard to just add the testing or unstable deb-src repository and have a go at creating your own backports from source packages.

    http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/xserver-xorg-video-intel


    There are some performance related improvements since 2.19.x

    http://ftp-master.metadata.debian.o.../xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.21.15-1_changelog

    Upgrading to the latest 2.21.x may not be worth all the effort however and the only big improvements may come from the latest 2.99.x upstream source and a newer kernel.

    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel/

    But... this will also inevitably involve backporting newer mesa/drm...

    I agree, a new user who wants to run steam is better off with a more bleeding edge distro than Debian stable.
