3D Graphics for VSphere

Hey,

So im running VSphere 6.7 on a homelab. 
Im trying to get the 3D Acceleration with more than 512MB Memory on Windows 10 host, but iam running into errors. 

Previoulsy ive been running Workstartion Player/Pro on a PC and that allows for 3D Graphics with DX11 and OpenGL as well as 8GB memory. My understanding is that this is a virtualized graphics card (running it within the ram?). 

Is there any way to get this working the same way in VSphere
Or have i misunderstood and the Workstation Player/Pro is actually utilizing my on-board graphics cards? 

Thanks!

After running some tests i see that both Workstation player and PRO actually do utilize the GPU.
So i will have to get one for my LAB PC. 

And im guessing 8GB ram is max for one VM. Which is fine. So consider this SOLVED! 🙂
