NVIDIA has enabled GPU passthrough beta support for a Windows virtual machine on GeForce GPUs. What does this mean?
With virtualization enabled, GeForce customers on a Linux host PC can now enable GeForce GPU passthrough on a virtual Windows guest OS. 

There are a few GeForce use cases where this functionality is beneficial such as:

- GeForce customers wanting to run a Linux host and be able to launch a Windows virtual machine (VM) to play games
- Game developers wanting to test code in both Windows and Linux on one machine

Which driver is GeForce virtualization (beta) supported on?
GeForce virtualization (beta) is supported on R465 (https://www.geeks3d.com/20210330/nvidia-geforce-465-89-graphics-driver-released-vulkan-1-2-168-opencl-3-0-resizable-bar/) or higher drivers.
