Hello, my system works freeze-free.

I am able to use both the modesetting driver and also the 
xf86-video-intel in xorg.conf, freeze-free.

But, I am using xf86-video-intel, because that way I can enjoy TearFree, 
which is not possible with "modesetting".

My CPU was launched in Q2/2014. When you say "legacy hardware", 
something like a needle printer, a floppy disk drive and serial modem 
pops to mind, not an 8-year old CPU, which is perfectly capable of doing 
day-to-day work-related actitivities.

S pozdravom,
