Historically we enabled D3D only on Nvidia & ATI hardware.
Intel chipsets are a large part of the market but we continually encountered
rendering artifacts that apparently were driver or hardware level issues.

For JDK 8 we did some testing on the newest (at the time) Intel HD chipsets
that FX was using successfully and enabled it under this bug ID

However we are exercising a different set of features than FX and people
have reported issues already, and there is a concern that now that 
to JDK 8 is kicking in that we'll get more. I've started to label these 
bugs as follows :-


At this time I propose to fix only in 8u40 so we can try again for JDK9 on
(even) later chipsets ..
