Windows Server 2016 Standard | Hyper-V | Graphic adapter passthru to VM using dda


  • Hi all,

    I've learned that with Windows Server 2016 you cannot just passthru devices to a virtual machine running in Hyper-V. This is due to direct device assignment (dda) which improves performance as it runs on a lower level than WMI previously, but it also means that the hardware must support this mode after all. (Please correct me when I'm wrong.)

    I want to do run a video editor on a VM and for that it's for sure recommended to use a graphic adaptor which has enough power for better performance. So my first question is: Which graphic adapters support dda on Hyper-V host? I didn't find a list, and I don't know if there actually is one available. But maybe one of you guys can help me.

    Thanks and regards
