    I'm confused... does this work with a Windows guest? Or only Linux host and Linux guest? and if it does work with a Windows guest does it support directx?

      Nope. There is no Windows/Direct3D support for now. Only Linux guests are supported.

        "for now" does that mean that ultimately that's something that could work?

          Yes. It is in their TODO list.

            what is the overhead loss? similar to the overhead of the cpu in a vm? or is it like 25 percent overhead?

                  I'm excited to see progress with Virgil 3D. But my primary (and probably only) use case would be to run Windows guests. So I hope Windows/Direct3D support is on the way.

                    This is cool to see.

                    On the Windows guest / Linux host side, VMware Tools SVGA vGPU driver works pretty well with up-to DirectX 10 support and performance similar to Wine CSMT. No DirectX 11 or 12 support yet, unless you do GPU passthrough.
