Question How to get VMware to use NVIDA Geforce GTX 1650 Super


Nov 30, 2021
How to get VMware to use NVIDA Geforce GTX 1650 Super. I'm running Widows 11. I'm using VMware to run Windows 7 to play some older games. When I try to install the games it says I need a 3D compatible graphics card. Is there a way to get VMware to recognize the Geforce card ?
Got to the settings of VMware and in the graphics tab click on hardware acceleration.
A lot of games will still not work because it will show up as a vmgraphics cards that will use the 1650 as hardware and not like a 1650, so games that look for a vendor or a model of GPU will not work.
From what I can gather, Windows 11 does not support GPU passthrough to a guest VM. But Microsoft introduced something called GPU Partitioning for Hyper-V based VMs back in Windows 10 for Pro/Enterprise/Server editions.

tl;dr, it looks like you can't have a VMWare VM use your video card for hardware acceleration in a Windows host.
