    Phoronix: Linux 5.13 - Another Step In Prepping Intel Discrete Graphics, Preferring Local Memory

    Over the past two years we have seen a lot of Intel Linux kernel graphics driver work in preparing to support Intel discrete graphics cards. That work is still ongoing even for the DG1 graphics card that has been sampling to customers while Linux 5.13 will take things another step forward this summer...

    I wonder how well is the kernel driver prepared to deal with multiple Intel dGPUs in the same system. I hope pretty well and I hope it is tested internally. It is useful for OpenCL and Vulkan, but there might be more use cases.

      As far as I know the Intel dGPU is still not enabled on Linux, so it's still too soon to question the possibility of getting two of those working.

        Last I saw the kernel driver can't manage 2 intel GPUs simultaneously, you have to hand the discrete to a VM.
