Could you please confirm that Xeon E3-1200 v5 is supported by iGVT-g? I
have seen places saying "5th gen core with iGPU and onward", but then I
also see Xeon E3-1500 v5 series product briefs that make it sound like this
feature was being introduced with those processors exclusively.
Thanks and regards,
I am very impressed and encouraged by this technology.
One question that I've not been able to get any information on is whether
or not iGVT-g will enable the use of Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) from
within a Xen- or KVM-hosted guest OS.
My use case is that I use a guest OS with a DVR software that transcodes
using QSV, but I also have other guest OS's (that probably do not need QSV.)
Is there any way to use QSV while virtualized, whether dedicated to a
single virtual host or shared?
could you kindly update us a bit in regard to how is it going with the upstreaming?
there was an upstream kernel merge in December, containing the mdev framework aware i915 driver:
does this mean that the latest kernel now has everything it takes to run vGPU on Intel graphics? Or is the upstreaming process still ongoing?
also there is a separate iGVT-g qemu repository. But for the mdev-based version, is any qemu modification required (i.e. are you preparing patches for upstream qemu as well)?
and about the guest drivers, as the ambition was I guess to be able to use native ones, does that mean that there will be no changes and the drivers currently available will do?
