Systems using Skylake, Broxton, or newer Intel graphics will need additional firmware[1] from sys-kernel/linux-firmware package or directly download blobs from:

DMC firmware

Display Microcontroller firmware provides support for advanced graphics low-power idle states.

GuC/HuC firmware

Graphics µController firmware offloads functions from the host driver. HEVC/H.265 µController firmware improves hardware acceleration of media decoding.

Including the firmware in-kernel may cause suspend-to-ram to fail, if this is a concern don't include the blob built into the kernel, instead, add the firmware blob into the initramfs.
