Grid K2 vs. K520

What is the technical difference between Grin K2 and Grid K520? I need to choose one for Autodesk based GPU applications on a Citrix XenServer hypervisor

The K520 won’t be supported as a vGPU for one, just the K2. The K340 and K520 are designed more for gaming.

Probably not of interest for you since the K2 is the appropriate GPU but the webpage http://www.nvidia.com/object/cloud-get-started.html shows which middleware, IaaS, OEM hardware partners and cloud game engine partners support the K340 and K520.
