    Looks like an interesting setup. If I didn't have old hardware lying around that still is good enough for our needs, I would have done the same. Unless I'm converting pictures (from RAW into JPEG or...

    Yes to both answers. However, it's not enough to have 2 VGA - your system (CPU, motherboard, BIOS) must support VT-d (Intel) or AMD-Vi (AMD) and it must be enabled. Also, not every VGA card plays...

    @srosato: I had a short look at your Xen HVM with VGA Passthrough installation guide - thanks for sharing. I haven't looked into the details, but do you describe primary passthrough? If not - that is...

    @salvo2002:

    It seems that you are after something different from what this thread is about. The main idea behind VGA passthrough is to avoid dual-boot - in other words, if you were normally using...

    This looks interesting. I've downloaded SPGT but haven't tried it yet - not enough time right now.

    Microsoft keeps improving Linux support for Hyper-V since there is a demand for Linux. However, I can't see Microsoft making any effort to support Windows to run on Xen or KVM, no drivers no nothing!...

    Thanks for this list. Strangely enough searching for Linux on their website turns up 1 item: a WiFi USB stick. There is no mention of Linux support under the product itself. Last not least, I asked...

    Almost half a year has gone since this announcement and promise to come up with a Xen 4.2 review (or benchmark?). By now Xen 4.2 has long been released, but I didn't see yet any review etc. on...

    I had a second look at the benchmark and noticed that Xen was using ext4 partitions. IIRC the Xen wiki clearly states that Xen should be used with LVM for best disk I/O performance. Of course one...

    nVidia can be tricky or outright impossible to pass through. I am using a nVidia Quadro 2000 for pass through and it works perfect, BUT this card along with some more expensive ones are the only...

    I totally disagree with Xen being more difficult than kvm. It's perhaps not the easiest of hypervisors, but at least it offers a wealth of documentation. KVM on the other hand is a disaster! Perhaps...

    I'm using Xen for some time now with VGA passthrough to a Windows 7 VM. It works incredibly well!

    Yes, it has been a pain to set up, mainly because of my stubborness to use unconfirmed hardware (a...

    It has already been pointed out that Xen has various options for virtualization. Benchmarks can be very helpful, particularly if they are setup to provide optimum performance. The exact setup must be...

    You are correct, we are trying to achieve different things. Here is what I'm doing:

    I'm not familiar with XCP, except that it's the cloud platform version. According to the Xen comparison matrix, XCP lags behind Xen and doesn't give you the latest features.
