Passthrough vs vGPU Licensing

Hello all,

i know thats a repeating topic, but i didnt find a satisfactory answer to this.

We want to use two RTX8000 in Passthrough mode with VMware ESXi.
For passthrough i need only vSphere Standard and no additional licenses from nVidia? I have to use “non-grid” drivers?

For a later POC we will use these cards for vGPU (perhaps). So i will need vSphere Enterprise Plus und nVidia vGPU license? vPC or vWS dependent from use case. And we will have to use grid drivers, which are different from those mentioned above?

thank you for your answers
