Probably so...
kernel VT with i915 + fbcon.
Now that I think back, I think real textmode was significantly faster.
By the way, this is the same reason "quiet" speeds up boot (my testing
showed ~ 2-3 seconds difference in kernel boot, out of ~8 seconds without
quiet...)
I've noticed similar effects with Xterm & urxvt, though ISTR that urxvt
can be sped up with asynchronous text output (I forget the option,
though).
