Can I use my second gpu in Virtual Machine ?

Hello everyone. I have GTX 1660Ti and Gtx 660. Can I make a windows 10 virtual machine that uses my gtx 660, not 1660ti ?

No, and you technically can't make a VM use either card.

A VM uses the SVGA virtual device, which is then rendered using the default GPU on the host. The guest never sees the 'real' GPU.

Hey mikero thanks for answering. I'm mining crypto and when i open VM, performance drops obviously. I wanted VM to use my gtx 660 as default 😞

That's not going to work out well.
