Early benchmarks show speeds that rivals native performance.
Wu benchmarked the Vulkan renderer using Basemark GPU’s low, medium, and high settings. To recap, Virgil 3D (virtio-gpu) is a 3D-accelerated graphics driver for virtual machines, or VM. Basemark also shows vtest, a testing framework that isolates Virgil from the VM. Comparing the scores, the virtual environment nearly matches native speeds, averaging 92%. It’s possible that its performance is even greater than the benchmark ran last month — time will tell.
