Hi! I don't post here often, so I'll try my best to adhere to expected forum conventions. If this is the wrong section/sub-forum for this thread, please let me know. I'll keep this short.

I'm currently building a virtualisation server, using a pair of nVIDIA Tesla K10's (by modding them into GRID K2's) in ESXi. However, I was looking around a bit and saw the Tesla K80's. Can those be used as vGPUs under ESXi? Is there a way to use them for graphical acceleration (or tasks outside of raw compute), or are the K80's unable to be used like the K10's? I haven't bought the K80's, due to the fact that I have nothing supporting s purchase of them yet. The K10's, however, are already in my possession (and will be modded soon). If there are any users of the Tesla K80's out there, your input is needed here. I want to know what they can and can't do (along with maybe some metrics on relative performance).

I have a Tesla K80.
But I only have Windows Server 2016.
I can install VMware and run a virtual machine on it.
if you want you can do this and check your assumption.
I have a few questions:
  1. Is the GPU being used as the primary GPU (to render what is on-screen)?
  2. Can the GPU be used with remote access solutions like Moonlight and the likes?
  3. How does it perform in 3D Mark and other benchmarks? Compared to other common GPUs?
I know some of these questions seem a bit unnecessary/redundant, but I haven't been able to catch much footage of it in action. Just trying to gauge how far I could get with it in my upcoming server project.

Not gonna lie - that video got published just days after I started considering the K10's. That video convinced me to buy them faster :D So definitely a stroke of luck with the timing.

Okay - I'll be back in a few months, once I figure out if I can source one...

I'm back. Might be getting a job soon. Hopefully I can grab a K80 to experiment with in my next server.

Saw this recently. Wondering if this applies to the K10's I currently have...

I'll be able to test a few of my theories soon enough, once I get my server. Just waiting for a particular, international setback to blow over. On a side note, just got a new job - which means I could start saving up for a few K80's in due time :D

Looks like I'm one step closer to playing around with some Tesla K80's. I managed to finally source a server that can actually house (and power) the GPU - ProLiant DL580 G7...

I managed to get the DL580 G7 in-house - Phase 1 is underway. Just waiting for a few more parts to arrive in the mail. Once it's finished, I'll be able to plan out an upgrade to a Tesla K80. Long-term objectives...
