If you set the none scheme, no acceleration will happen as long as the
device stays plugged. (you can't switch schemes live, only profiles).
For gaming, you might want to check out adaptive deceleration. Though
then you'd first need to kill whatever tweaks your acceleration. I know
of no such bug in xorg.
