I've seen that support for hardware accelerated rendering is getting mature in Qemu now but I'm confused about the best way to set it up, or if it's worth it compared to VMWare's 3D support.

For example, some documentation seems to suggest that Spice works best with OpenGL, but it isn't clear if that is for software rendering or hardware. At the same time you're told to use QXL graphics for Spice, but does that even support hardware acceleration?

I'd like to know which are the available options for display and graphics device, and also whether this support extends beyond Linux guests.
