vSphere SR-IOV device differences

G'day,

Does any know what the difference is with adding SR-IOV devices in a VM as a PCI Device or Network adapter with type SR-IOV passthrough?  Everything I have read suggests it is the same?  The only difference being configuring as a Network adapter is only supported in ESXi 5.5 and newer and is only supported by a limited number of guest Operating Systems.  For Windows it must be version 2008 and newer, for Linux it must be RHEL 6 or newer.

Thanks in advance

James
