For years, Nvidia has tried to artificially block GPU passthrough on GeForce cards, but now they’ve finally made a 180. Could this be the start of a new Nvidia?

  • You don't need two GPUs to do this you need 1 GPU and software. Nvidia has software and it's closed making it very sketchy to Linux users Nvidia likes windows because its closed. Closed software has the potential to implement with similar technologies that could communicate with Intel's backdoor. What happens when nvidia recognises the growth of gnu/linux? They finally 'decide', when its more of a plan, to create more propietary software for it. And this is after they open source non vital software. Making it all too farfetched for me to trust the proprietary drivers even inside a VM. I think its more of a plan then anything. I also believe that true Linux users aren't as stupid as people think and aren't going to fall for such a simple trap

  • This code 43 problem is what stopped me from using a GTX 960 as an eGPU via expresscard (and later M.2) on my laptop for ages, unless I used ancient modded drivers (in later ones, the bypass was "fixed" by nvidia so those drivers didn't work at all). Sooo I just ditched nvidia and got a used RX470 which worked out of the box and didn't have any of those r*tarded restrictions. [insert linus torvalds flipping off nvidia here]

  • Man talk to me about the error 43 on the egpu part. With manufacturer whitlisting mpcie port to block gpu card, to not specifying that their m.2 is pciex4 or x2 or even x1, then with 10 series with locked driver and even newer gpu like 1050 and 1030 requiring later driver that also lock them. I would need to buy some user-created software to bypass them and even that's complicated enough. Even thunderbolt has issue with this(also m2) that limiting the pcie bandwidth crippling the performance. Im now happy with the new thunderbolt 4 though that works kinda like a pcie hub with the gpd 3 although i didn't use it as much as before.

  • so basically you can run a mining rig on your pc and at the same time run it on a VM and basically get double Hashing power. as long as the Graphic card has enough Vram? I'm going to test this! because theoretically, you would be able to do 100Mhs on an RTX 3060.

  • "Is Nvidia turning over a new leaf?" I'm still waiting for open source Nvidia drivers. In my opinion, only having closed source drivers provided, is like a subtle form of planned obsolescence. Because new developments happen in Linux that require the updates to the driver. But Nvidia doesn't keep updating their drivers forever. So when they stop, Nvidia cards slowly become more incompatible with newer versions of linux. But as we can see with AMD's open source drivers for Linux, the community can make updates to the drivers when AMD drops support, keeping old cards functional in new OS versions. AMD GPUs age like fine wine in Linux. Nvidia GPUs age like milk. I suppose the reverse engineered, open source Nvidia drivers by the community are like powdered milk in this analogy. It takes work to give milk a longer shelf life, but the result is unappealing compared to the fresh milk, and it's just bad compared to well aged wine. But AMD make their Linux drivers open source despite the potential lost profits of people being able to continue using their old GPUs, and the fact that their competitors can look over their drivers for things to steal. The only problem I have with AMD drivers, is that they have a reputation for being pretty bad when a new corresponding GPU is released. It takes a while for them to get good.

  • GPU pass through is also great if your a cross-platform developer, and especially if you're dealing with graphics-related software. Being able to test how different graphics drivers from both AMD/Nvidia on different OS's behave with your code is crucial, especially if you are dealing with a bug report from someone with a different system configuration than your own host. Unsurprisingly, Nvidia's Linux drivers causes a lot of issues, so this allows me to test them without having to run Nvidia on my main Linux host. The Error 43 workarounds have worked pretty smoothly for me, but it's nice to finally see it being supported as an official feature.

  • As a gamer I consider this a bad thing, most modern undetected cheats run on virtual machines as the host pc can extract data and even if the cheats don’t directly inject into the game on the VM it can be used as a packet radar or ESP. Many games have been ruined by users running these cheats so companies like battleye were forced to take action to stop these cheaters. The more adoption there is the easier it will be for cheat developers to hide their cheats on VM’s and get away with it.

  • Yeah, I'm running a setup like this on a 3960X Threadripper. RTX 2070 Super for Linux, GTX 980 for Windows. Guess what? Now the strx40 chipset is right under two graphics cards that default to zero fanspeed mode. And the chipset fan that would under normal circumstances rarely turn on at all has to run not only more frequently but also faster. Which ends up producing the ONLY audible noise of the water cooled CPU and otherwise well ventilated system. Linus, Alex! Halph! How about a project about those pesky X570 and sTRX40/80 chipset fans?

    • Oh, and about looking-glass and scream (you'll need the latter for audio): runs perfectly fine at 4K@60. But beware, it only shows Windows output so there's some short hiccup when you need privilege escalation (UAC prompts) and when the display is outside the Windows system (bootup/reboot/some upgrades that are done on shutdown or reboot). Nothing major, runs through without problem, you just don't see it. If you jack in a monitor into the passthrough card you can still watch all the otherwise invisible magic. :) Love the setup, highly recommended.

  • being late to the game may perhaps merit some acknowledgments, but to flat out give appraisals for doing something that shouldn't have been blocked to begin with doesn't negate their business practices. Nvidia might have awesome hardware, but their business practices & ideology discredits any breadcrumbs they might be throwing you now. Going all "YAY Nvidia" and arse kissing doesn't get them a free pass IMHO.
