    Proxmox...

    ​​​​​​​I was talking about QEMU.

    I'll offer an unpopular opinion. Using virt-manager is way harder than using qemu directly. Editing virsh or virt-manager is mostly harder than editing direct qemu command. I just save the commands in script files and launch those. I don't know why people use virsh.

    It's a shame the blog post doesn't mention options such as Intel GVT. It appears that GVT works when launching qemu directly, but support via libvirt, virsh and virt-manager doesn't exist yet. Anyone aware of work towards enabling GVT via virt-manager?
    Maybe this? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...#Using_libvirt

    I was using QXL for windows, and got quite some comments below the video that people where impressed by the performance, two years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyclA-_M-aA

    Never tried system session, but on user session it work pretty fine for me.
    Edit: Also I use Q35 and PCIe if it makes any difference.

    Why? It is pretty trivial, just select virtio device and click 3D acceleration checkbox.
