There are multiple ways to run 3D workloads in KVM guests. This session
will explore the many options that are usable today, as well as a few
more that are still work in progress, and clarify the options available
for recente products from each of the main GPU vendors.

In particular, the session will cover:
- Direct GPU assignment, dedicating a GPU for a specific VM
- vGPU, which lets you split a single GPU for use in multiple VMs
- VirtIO GPU, which offers more flexibility at the expense of performance
- SPICE streaming for remote 3D rendering

After attending the session, attendees should be able to
1. Know how to choose a 3D virtualization solution that matches their needs
2. Know how to configure a virtual machine in that configuration
3. Understand performance and quality trade-offs"
