    What is the real world use of this?

    Have there been any AMD-based laptops which have an Nvidia discrete GPU built into them?

    Have there been any AMD-based laptops which have an Intel discrete GPU built into them?

    Have there been any Intel-based laptops which have an AMD discrete GPU built into them?

    Have there been any AMD-based laptops which have a more powerful AMD discrete GPU?

    Or is this part of some "foundational groundwork" which will help lead to crossfire/SLI support in the OSS driver? (Ditto for nouveau)

    Or...... ?

    I haven't looked at laptops in quite a long time, so I genuinely do not know. My old laptop still serves me well for now.

    Yes, but my use case is more: 2 radeon gpus, 2 monitors attached each, and having radeon gpu 1 doing the rendering for them all (don't really care about gaming, just pretty opengl desktop).

    Is the solution generic enough so that I can replace "intel gpu" with "radeon gpu", is basically what I'm asking.

    Does this mean we might finally be able to have two gpus driving 4 displays, but with a single gpu drawing everything (so that there no xinerama and etc issues)?
    That would be an awesome way to have 4 displays for working with old crappy graphics cards.
