CFL has some difference from KBL. Its support is under development now.

Subject: [iGVT-g] i5-8259U with Iris Plus Graphics 655 (0x3EA5) supported?
This is probably a dumb question but is GVT-g supported on the 8th gen i5-8259U processor
(present in Intel NUC8i5)?
(I want to try GVT-g for running macOS under KVM but I'm unsure if I should get an
Intel NUC7i5 or a NUC8i5.)
According to the below doc it has an Iris Plus Graphics 655 with device ID 0x3EA5.
From other posts I've understood that Coffee Lake and/or 8th gen
CPUs are not supported, e.g.
However, since the i5-8259U CPU has an Iris Plus Graphics GPU -- similar to the i5-7260U
(present in e.g. NUC7i5) -- I'm hoping that it might be supported despite being an 8th
gen CPU? :)
(..since many other CFL processors appear to feature "UDH Graphics NNN", which I
understand is not supported)
the Iris Plus Graphics 655 (0x3EA5):
/* CFL U GT3 */
#define INTEL_CFL_U_GT3_IDS(info) \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x3EA5, info), /* ULT GT3 */ \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x3EA6, info), /* ULT GT3 */ \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x3EA7, info), /* ULT GT3 */ \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x3EA8, info) /* ULT GT3 */
For reference, here's what the same file says for the supposedly supported 7th gen
i5-7260U (Iris Plus Graphics 640, ID 0x5926):
#define INTEL_KBL_GT3_IDS(info) \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x5923, info), /* ULT GT3 */ \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x5926, info), /* ULT GT3 */ \
INTEL_VGA_DEVICE(0x5927, info) /* ULT GT3 */
Thank you in advance and have a nice weekend!
