VMGL: OpenGL 3D Hardware Acceleration within VM's

15 Jul 2007

E@zyVG: This is major news for the virtualisation field as 3D acceleration has been the one area where there has not been much progress.

Introducing VMGL,
which provides OpenGL Hardware 3D Acceleration for Virtual Machines. It
is a program that you install in both the host and guest and allows for
virtualizing the OpenGL functions. When tested in xen with Quake 3
& Unreal Tournament 2004 it provides for up to 87% of the
performance of the native implementation.
