The role of GPU Hardware for QubesOS in its Development Roadmap

Other users have commented on how Qubes does not have a simple process for attaching GPUs from dom0 to VMs although there are community guides and it is possible. GPUs are increasingly more important for different applications including mining, gaming, and AI.

This post is to discuss the development roadmap for GPU hardware, the direction the developers are considering, and user feedback.
