2 gamers 1 cpu with Hyper-V?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I am curios if I can make such a 2 gamers 1 cpu build, but I find that option to make it work too hard, at least for me, I currently have a cpu which would support this, of course if I can do it somehow else I will change to a better one, but is hyper-V a good option to do this? Are there any other options?

Here is my Rig:

Intel i5-6402P

Gpu: gtx 950

Ram 8gb 2133 Mhz

2 tb hdd

240 gb ssd

which cpu is it? A full list of parts in your pc would actually help.

What would I need for it to be good and stuff?

 

About 24-32GB of RAM and at least an 8c/16t CPU.

 

And even then, HyperV can't do it. It can share a GPU, but it can't do a full passthrough for exclusive access afaik. And it's only for RemoteFX acceleration.


PC Specs - AMD Ryzen 5 3600X MSI B450M Mortar Max 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3266 - RX5700XT 660p 1TBGB & 256GB 600p Fractal Define Mini C CM V550 W10 Pro 1903

I think on the newer hyper-v you can pass through a graphics card but you need to pass through the entire card to a single VM. So you would need to have a GPU per VM.

Even though you can pass-through PCI-Express devices in to VM's with later versions of Hyper-V it is not designed anything like unraid.

Hyper-V isn't a suitable choice for this, plus you need more than 1 GPU in your spec at a bare minimum.  Look at using unraid with 2 GPU's and a much better specification CPU/Memory.

Try a multipoint software like a multipoint in windows server. That way you can do it all on one gpu and don't need to setup vms at all.

 

But really its much easier and cheaper for you to buy a second system.

server 2016 has full pcie passthrough.
