Is iGPU passthrough possible with VMware Player/Workstation?

Hello,

In the past, I've made an attempt at iGPU passthrough with virtualization software, but each time, it was a complete trainwreck. Ultimately, VMware has shown to be much higher quality than anything else I've used in the past (definitely much more stable).

 

That being said, how can iGPU passthrough be achieved with VMware Player and/or Workstation? I've scoured the internet for guides on this subject, and each time, came up with absolutely nothing or posts stating that it was "impossible" (which I highly doubt, tbh).

 

Therefore, does anyone here know how to do this? Help would be tremendously appreciated.

You cannot.  None of the hosted products support GPU (or any PCI, etc, cards for that matter) passthrough.  Only ESXi does.  And that cannot be managed from the machine it is running on.
