    [SOLVED] Could you use vGPU as a successor to Multi-GPU setups?

    Could you use multiple GPUs together and use a VM to connect them into a vGPU (if the Graphics Cards support virtualization) so that you can have parallel tasks running together on the multiple GPUs? (e.g. using 2 GPU and connecting them into 1vGPU)

    [SOLVED] Can 1 vCPU use 2 cores?

    Many vCPUs are used as multiple vCPU (e.g. 2 vCPU) to 1 core (almost as a sort of hyperthreading). But what would happen if it were the other way around so you had multiple cores (e.g. 2 cores) to 1 vCPU? Don't question as to why, I would just like to know if it would work. Thanks, Joshua123033

    Looking for correct RAM sticks to add to current ones.

    In four sticks of RAMs, should tRAS, the fourth value in timing, match for all four sticks of RAM for stability of a system? Or does it even matter? Thanks in advance.
