Поддержка API DirectX 11 и OpenGL 4.1 в виртуальных машинах VMware

Компания VMware реализовала поддержку графических API DirectX 11 и OpenGL 4.1 в виртуальных машинах в следующих своих продуктах:

Почему не бьются версии vHW выяснить не удалось.

Новый функционал может быть интересен для поддержки 3D в средах VDI в режиме VSGA (HCL):

EVC  Graphics Mode (vSGA):  D3D 11.0 class features

С ESXi 7.0 Update 1 (vHW 18, VMware Tools 11.1.5+) появился новый режим EVC. который распространяется на функционал vSGA:

Option Description
Baseline Graphics Applies the Baseline Graphics feature set that includes features through Direct3D 10.1/OpenGL 3.3.

Note:To configure the vSGA mode to apply the Baseline Graphics set that includes features through Direct3D 10.1/OpenGL 3.3, the virtual machine must be compatible with ESXi 7.0 Update 1 or earlier.
D3D 11.0 class features Applies the baseline graphics feature set that includes features through Direct3D 11.0/OpenGL 4.1

Note:To configure the vSGA mode to apply the Baseline Graphics set that includes features through Direct3D 11.0/OpenGL 4.1, verify that the virtual machine is compatible with ESXi 7.0 Update 2 or later and has installed VMware Tools 11.1.5 or later.

To power on a virtual machine, configured with Direct3D 11.0/OpenGL 4.1, verify that the ESXi host graphics hardware is available.

Примечание: на использование VSGA c серверными vGPU картами накладываются лицензионные ограничения, но сервер лицензирования для выдачи и учёта лицензий не требуется.

    1. Точнее в GA100, которая не требует лицензий и режет не только память, но и блоки процессора.
