GPU supported in vSphere 5.5?

Posted on

When you read “VMware vSphere 5.5 What’s New PDF” in here, on page 6 it said:

Expanded vGPU Support
vSphere 5.1 was the first vSphere release to provide support for hardware-accelerated 3D graphics—virtual
graphics processing unit (vGPU)—inside of a virtual machine. That support was limited to only NVIDIA-based
GPUs. With vSphere 5.5, vGPU support has been expanded to include both Intel- and AMD-based GPUs. Virtual
machines with graphic-intensive workloads or applications that typically have required hardware-based GPUs
can now take advantage of additional vGPU vendors, makes and models. See the VMware Compatibility Guide
for details on supported GPU adapters.

I’m trying to find what model for Intel or AMD or NVIDIA graphics card compatible and fully supported with vSphere 5.5 in VMware HCL, but so far I could not find anything.




Last updated from VMware, they will update the HCL soon. But already 3 month since the date released, they still not updated the HCL yet.
