SYNOPSIS

intel_vbt_decode [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

intel_vbt_decode is a tool to parse the Intel Video BIOS Tables (VBT) and present the information in a human readable format.
The preferred ways of getting the binary VBT to parse are:
1.
/sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_vbt (since kernel version 4.5)
2.
/sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_opregion
3.
Using the intel_bios_dumper(1) tool.

The VBT consists of a VBT header, a BIOS Data Block (BDB) header, and a number of BIOS Data Blocks.

OPTIONS

--file=FILE
Parse Video BIOS Tables from FILE.
--devid=DEVID
Pretend to be PCI ID DEVID. Some details can be parsed more accurately if the platform is known.
