    Phoronix: VIRTIO 1.1 Standard Moving Closer To Release With GPU Device, Better Performance

    The Virtual I/O Device standard, VIRTIO, is moving closer to seeing its big 1.1 release. The VIRTIO standard as a reminder devices/drivers around networking, storage, and other areas akin to Xen paravirtualized drivers and VMware Guest Tools but designed with cross-hypervisor and cross-OS support in mind...

    VirtioGPU is nice, but until it will be possible to use it with Spice over a tcp socket it will be just an exercise of style unfortunately

      I want to see a VirtIO VFS device (for access to the host VFS which is as "native" as it is for an application on the host), hope I don't have to write it, lol. I think the host is the right place for filesystem metadata, snapshotting, caching, and multi-device logic to live (provided the host filesystem can be trusted, I guess).

        GNOME Boxes in 3.32 will enable VirtioGPU when supported too.

            Eh. If Vulkan-VirGL progresses, with DXVK could have a proper solution there.

            Parallels on OS X still uses Wined3d afaik.

                I've been using Virtio to run several linux distributions through QEMU and I am very impressed, even though I couldn't get 3D graphics working with my NVIDIA binary drivers. (I only get a black screen when I enable 3D) It runs Gnome on Wayland without issue in my guest system.

                  Thanks for the reminder. 👍 It does not appear in my searches very often.
