In the past, we were asked several times about GVT-g supported machines types.
In general, our XenGT (GVT-g version for Xen) supports 4th Generation and above Core(TM)
processor with Intel Graphics processor i3/i5/i7, it also supports Intel E3 v3, v4, v5
because so far only E3 server CPU has integrated GPU. KVMGT (GVT-g version for KVM)
supports 5th Generation and above Core(TM) processor i3/i5/i7, it also supports Intel E3
Besides the CPU version, GVT-g has another dependency on BIOS. By now, GVT-g needs at
least 512M GPU aperture size in BIOS configuration in order to launch multi VMs. Most of
OEM machines have a default 256M aperture which can only support 1 Guest Windows VM.
With that in mind, we have tried 3 off-shelf machines and run GVT-g on them. Those
machines are available in the market, have configurable GPU aperture size and serial
port/jumper for debug purpose. Of cause, we couldn't verify all ODM/OEM machines
considering the engineering resource, bandwidth, budget, so these machines types are just
for your reference.
Refer to attachment for more details.
