    It should also be more secure, I imagine, since you avoid potential DMA-style attacks.

    Phoronix: VirtIO-GPU Working Towards Vulkan Support, Other Features For Graphics In VMs

    As we've known for a long time, VirtIO-GPU / Virgl Vulkan support to allow accelerated Vulkan within virtual machines is in the works but still has a long road ahead. A number of other VirtIO-GPU features are also in the works or at least planning stages...
