    Phoronix: Linux 5.14 To Begin Enabling The Intel Graphics TTM Memory Management Bits for dGPUs

    While a decade ago Intel's open-source Linux graphics driver engineers resisted TTM at the time and instead devised the Graphics Execution Manager (GEM) for kernel graphics memory management needs in its place, now with discrete graphics cards and dedicated video memory, Intel has been working on making use of TTM memory management for those purposes. With Linux 5.14 the initial bits are going to be there for using TTM by the Intel driver when running with discrete graphics having local memory...

      It's clearly written across the board. The reason they are working with TTM is that they are making discrete GPUs, why would they apply it immediately to all their igpus?

        Will this have any effect on their Xe Max laptops? Specifically in the (awkward/strange) need of using a VM to use it under linux?
