Hi, I am trying to use my GPU on a Virtual machine in order to run some games, however the CPU is not enough to support the graphics. I was looking for ways to enable GPU passthrough or similar but all I could find was for Bare-metal Hypervisor, Windows Server or Pro versions or RemoteFX which seems to not be as secure as I would like. I am using the following relevant hardware and Software:
Windows 10 Home Edition

Windows Hyper-V

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-Core 16-Thread

32GB RAM

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

Hyper-V

    Hi,

    You can use Discrete Device Assignment (DDA) to pass through a PCIe device like a graphic card to a virtual machine, however this feature is only supported on Windows Server.
