Proper Installation of GRID K520

Hi - I’m new here. I’ll try to keep this short…

I currently have a GRID K520 in a server that’s running ESXi 6.5U3. I’d like to know the following:

  • Is there GRID software for the hypervisor that I need to install before using the card?
  • Is there a driver for the hypervisor that I need to install before I can use the card in VMs?
  • What is the latest driver version that I should be using, to get the best experience possible?
  • Do these cards have NVENC encoders that can be used to encode a video stream for a remote client?

I’m trying to make sure I don’t skip over anything, but am not sure if I’m doing this right.

The reason why I ask this is due to the fact that when I looked into the GRID K2 and K520, the K2’s installation process involved drivers for both the hypervisor server and the VM guests, and GRID software for the server. However, I was not able to find the same files for the K520. Perhaps I missed something?
