    If xen passthrough works like kvm then you should be able to share a single card.

      Am I correct in understanding two things:

      1) VMWare has OpenGL acceleration of a Linux guest, but can't accelerate Direct3D in a Windows guest?

      2) This "Xen passthrough" stuff I keep hearing about could only be used with a second graphics card for accelerating graphics?
      1) No, VMWare can do directx in windows guests

      2)Not exactly, you can do it with one card but basically only one OS at a time will be able to actually use the card for 3d
