    it would be a nice follow up article if you get a chance to map out things like which models in ati/nvidia support vm video as well as any other quarks that may be hiding. since I don't have an enterprise presence most of the contacts for ati/nvidia have not responded to any of my questions. It is making it quite a challenge for me to dig up a good card to use at a reasonable price. I'm thank full for sites like this where we can get real answers and insite to these things.

    The discussion here mentions the Grid M40 and Tesla M10 have same PnP ID so could be that the drivers for M10 work on M40

    Hey STH,

    So I tested the Grid M40 with the driver - 354.56_HpeServers_WinServer64.exe

    Test Unit:
    ASUS ESC4000-G3S
    2x E5-2630v4 10 Core 2.2GHz
    48Gb DDR4 2133P
    1x Grid M40
    1x GTX 1080ti
    1x Quadro K1200

    Unraid 6.2
    Win Server 12 R2
    Win 10 Pro

    Firstly:
    Unraid recognised the card as a Tesla M10, This was not the case when I first purchased it was identified as a Nvidia Device. As you can see the 1080ti I have inside now is under that device name.

    The drivers are specific for 12 r2 so I installed with VNC then shut down and sent through 1 M40 to the OS. Then I proceeded to install drivers with no issues at all, GPU was recognised on restart see below;

    After removing the VNC and setting up RDP I restarted and connected to the machine through RDP, Desktop Hardware Acceleration was present. To test is not the most scientific way but I loaded youtube and a video playback was smooth which if Hardware acceleration isn't present this is not possible. I know this because on the 1080ti its not possible. Quadro & Tesla drivers have RDP Desktop Hardware acceleration in them and GeForce don't (I have discovered a way to get hardware acceleration on RDP with GeForce once I test some more I will write a post for everyone)


    So testing its CUDA performance in Windows I tested with Octane Render, A CUDA accelerated Unbiased renderer that has a benchmark called OctaneBench (See Link)

    OctaneBench.png

    A score of 36.32 was achieved with a single M40 as a comparison I've attached relevant scores from other Quadro cards and another with an assorted cards that are close in performance.

    I then tried to passthrough all 4 chips on the board, This was not possible it would hang on boot same with 3 passed through to the VM.
    Although I could get 2 in one VM running I then tested 3 vm's 2 with 1 M40 and 1 with 2 M40's and there where no issues I could run the benchmark on all VM's simultaneously. Ive attached the result of Dual M40's

    Then on to Windows 10 Pro.
    The driver wouldn't install, I had to run it in Compatibility mode to get passed the OS check but then would fail to install the Video Driver.
    One thing I will test as the driver is for the K2200 also which I have access to I can borrow one for 2-3 days is passthrough the K2200 and install the driver and see if it would pass the stage of the driver install then proceed to pass the M40 through.

    If anyone has any insight on getting the driver to work on Windows 10 it would be appreciated :)

    Interesting find on the Grid M40, Which may apply to the M10.
    If in a x8 slot only 2 GPUs of 4 show in OS.

    I bought them and it would be a waste if I didn't use them. I dont think I can return them or sell them.
    I was a fool thinking that they are l;ike anyother cards and i can download the drivers
