You can set up a supported Linux distribution to take advantage of NVIDIA vGPU (shared GPU hardware acceleration) capabilities on the ESXi host.

You must use the NVIDIA Linux VM display driver that matches the ESXi host GPU driver (.vib). See the NVIDIA website for information about driver packages.

Note: For information about the NVIDIA graphics cards and Linux distributions that support vGPU capabilities, see
Caution: Before you begin, verify that Horizon Agent is not installed on the Linux virtual machine. If you install Horizon Agent before you configure the machine to use NVIDIA vGPU, required configuration parameters in the xorg.conf file are overwritten, and NVIDIA vGPU does not work. You must install Horizon Agent after the NVIDIA vGPU configuration is completed.
