      You're probably thinking of Virgil (which is also interesting).

      Intel GVT-g is described as "a full GPU virtualization approach with mediated pass-through." It offers about 80% to 90% of bare metal performance.

      A flier that gives a nice overview can be found here. And an old demo video can be found here.

      I'll just add that iGVT-g comes in two flavors: KVMGT and XenGT. Last I heard, XenGT requires 4th gen (Haswell) or newer; and KVMGT requires 5th gen (Broadwell) or newer. But what is supported may be a moving target.
