Nvidia's Virtualization Unlocked On Gaming GPUs via Hack

A group of enthusiasts has unlocked vGPU (GPU virtualization) capability, which is only supported on select datacenter and professional boards, on standard consumer Nvidia GeForce gaming graphics cards. Since the vGPU capability is supported by the silicon but locked out by software, it was only a matter of time and effort before enthusiasts unlocked the feature. As it turns out, according to a Reddit post, that time has come, potentially saving some users the thousands of dollars they would otherwise have to shell out for a Quadro or Tesla GPU that supports the feature.

Yea, I have known about this for a bit now, seems everyone is catching on. Those 10 Teslas might be worth a bit in a few months time. Great article. 

Ha good point, quick....buy them all up !

Those tesla's are now worth less. With this and Nvidia now allowing GPU Passthrough on GeForce cards, no one has to spend the extra money to use virtualization.

...didn't he already do that ? ?

 

Somewhat related, many moons ago we had some Radeon 7990s ('dual 7970s') at work, and they could be re-flashed to the twice-as-expensive workstation counterpart card and unlock all the features with the pro-drivers
