Hi (nvidia) folks,
According to this blog entry - http://blogs.vmware.com/performance/2011/10/gpgpu-computing-in-a-vm.html - , certain Nvidia GPUs which support so-called ‘direct-passthrough’ are capable to be used for GPU (CUDA) computing within an Virtual machine (VMWare ESX).
The blog mentions that Quadro GPUs (i support at least the newst Fermi-architecture Quadros) support ‘direct-passthrough’. Is that right ? Furthermore, I would like to know if the Fermi architecture Tesla GPUs (C2050, etc…) do support also ‘direct-passthrogh’ ???
According to the blog, no modifications to the application which uses CUDA have to be made, if I understood correctly. Is that right ?
