> Hi,
> 
> It is increasingly common for servers to come with graphic cards that have
> multiple GPUs. Admin would like to leverage this and be able to dedicate
> GPU to user VMs that have high graphic processing requirements. For
> example, Auto-Cad applications, games.
> 
> This feature will enable the support of GPU and VGPU on XenServer and
> further extend it to support VMWARE. With GPU support, admin can
> dedicate a GPU card to a VM and in case of VGPU, multiple VMs can share
> the same GPU card.
