NVIDIA, Virtual Machines on Linux now have an edge


This morning we informed you of the launch of NVIDIA's new GeForce Ready 465.89 WHQL drivers, which have introduced official Resizable BAR support on all RTX 30 series graphics cards. In addition to this, the drivers have added support for Reflex technology in Rainbow Six Siege to further reduce latency, which is particularly useful during the most demanding matches, and other optimizations for Square Enix's recent Outriders.

However, on the Linux front things get even more interesting, especially for those who habitually use virtual machines. In fact, with the 465 beta drivers, as reported by Phoronix colleagues, the Californian company has added support for GPU passthrough also on the GeForce line. This is definitely good news for those people who want to play old Windows-based games inside a virtual machine using a Linux-based operating system. In particular, NVIDIA supports GPU passthrough on the GeForce GTX 900 series and above on notebooks, while on desktops it starts with the GeForce RTX 1000 line. At the moment, Windows 10 is the only operating system that can be used for virtualization. Further details have been published by NVIDIA's customer service at this address.

Yesterday we also reported the results of some tests conducted on a GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition at 4K resolution in various video games by activating the feature Resizable Bar. The results, at least on that occasion, left something to be desired. For further information we advise you to consult our previous news.
