  1. As far as I know, you cant pass an IGPU to a VM

    fortytwo - unRAID X399 build

    damn MSI MEG Creation X399 is one expensive mobo
  3. Brilliant, thats the kind of response I was after thanks @bastl I have been looking at the specs 1950x vs 2950x and there doesnt seem to be much between them. The 2950x is higher clocked and has improved infinity fabric I believe but probably not worth the extra £300. Might see if I can find a 1950x on ebay

    Windows 10 VM not working with graphics card

    It would help to know: 1. Do you have more than one GPU in your system 2. What model GPU If you have only one GPU then you will need to dump the bios in order to pass it through. Spaceinvader has done an excellent video on this If you have more than one GPU, then passing through AMD cards may cause issues. Certainly I have not been able to pass through a RX480 consistently. Worked just fine with Nvidia cards
  5. Hi guys I am considering upgrading from a xeon to a 2950x. Im sure a lot of other members are considering the same. Could someone be so kind as to catalogue any outstanding issues with threadripper that have not got a solution. I know there is a @SpaceInvaderOne video on Ryzen, but I think it would aid a lot of people with this kind of decision if the current state of threadripper and VM is documented. Thanks for any assistance on this matter
  6. Question: Do people notice a difference in performance between 64GB and 128GB? I get that the extra 64GB could be used for plex transcoding but I was wondering if unraid makes good use of the additional ram for caching or something?

    Help with virtualization and GPU passthrough

    I believe that mobo has 2x pcie x8 slots so should work fine I dont believe you will see a great performance increase if you got faster ram, but others may have different opinions. I have 64gb 2133 ecc and never really use more than 16GB for a vm. The rest is used as temporary cache I believe As with a lot of things unRAID, ymmv

    Help with virtualization and GPU passthrough

    Depending on your budget I would recommend a 1070 or 1080.
