I don't think you can fold a GPU WU in a VM, but you can under Linux with the "Wine Wrapper".
From 2009:"No its that majority if not all VMs are only grabbing up 128M of your video so in no way shape or form would it be able to have the needed capability of GPURam amount. Not to mention if it can only grab 128M of Vram then I'm sure the bandwidth is utter crap."
What about running the cards in Windows and the CPU in a VM? That's what we used to do 3+ years ago for better SMP points. Good Luck Pete!
