NVIDIA Adds Official Support for Virtualizing GeForce GPUs

NVIDIA officially adds support for passing through GeForce GPUs to Windows VMs for gaming.


Big News from NVIDIA

Just a few hours ago, NVIDIA added an article to its support knowledge base regarding GPU passthrough support for Windows VMs. While we've supported this functionality for some time, it was done without official support from the vendor themselves.

This move by NVIDIA to announce official support for this feature is a huge step in the right direction for all of our VM pass through users. This should also help instill confidence in users that wish to pass through these GPUs to virtual machines without the worry that a future driver update would break this functionality.

We will be doing some testing on this in the weeks ahead to see what impact (if any) this has to improving performance for this use-case with various tweaks to VM configuration.

Stay tuned for more information!

Now if only AMD would make the same gesture... 😉

What do you think?

Let us know if you've tested this out and see any improvements.
