    Default Virtualizing The Gallium3D Graphics Stack

    Phoronix: Virtualizing The Gallium3D Graphics Stack

    Nearly two months ago we first reported on the Gallium3D driver that few knew about in the form of a Gallium3D driver that targeted the Xen virtualization platform similar to what VMware now does with its virtual Gallium3D driver for offering hardware accelerate on guest operating systems via Gallium3D.
