View 6, Windows 8.1 and hardware accelerated graphics

According to the Horizon View 6 white paper "Graphics acceleration in View virtual desktops", only Windows 7 is supported for vSGA or vDGA.

I need to build a solution with hardware accelerated graphics for Windows 8.1 clients.

What are my options?

I would assume you are trying this in a test Environment ??

Please provide the Hardware Details I see there are drivers available from NVidia and you should be able to deploy using the same vdga Configuration apart from being Unsupported from VMware.

I am not testing yet, just investigating for a customer. In his current setup, which is high-resolution Windows 7 desktops, performance is acceptable.

But testing the same setup with Windows 8.1 shows a bad graphic experience. He is willing to invest in hardware acceleration, but being unsupported and uncertain if this will solve the problem is not the best starting point.
