Windows DPDK bifurcation support

We have been looking into adding kernel bypass support for Mellanox NICs on Windows. Could you tell me the current state of DPDK support for Mellanox NICs on Windows, in particular is bifurcation supported? If this is supported could you let me know which NICs?

Hello and thank you for contacting us.

Here you can see which OS are supported under paragraph 1.6 Tested Platforms for the latest version 22.03:

Unfortunately, Windows OS isn’t in the list. On the other hand, there is a threat with install information for Windows. It means that you can install Windows but it is not supported because it hasn’t been fully tested. Probably in the future. You can monitor for future OS support.

Here is the link how to install on Windows:
