Can i use intel or amd apu for gpu passthrough


#1

can i use my APU for the host and use my GPU for windows 7 and switch to my real GPU on my host when i need to play Linux games? i have a old GPU but im lazy


#2

Switching the graphics card between OSes isn’t going to turn out well, but the integrated graphics could work to power your display on linux.


#3

ill just get my old gpu do i need any thing else?


#4

IOMMU groups that work and probably a weekend to setup KVM/QEMU for passthrough. If you’re not using looking glass you will need a second monitor.

  • or a second input on your monitor and switch its input when gaming.

e.g., run one card on displayport and the other on HDMI and change input on the monitor as appropriate.
