This would be intersting for me too, at the moment we are running ESX 3.5 on HP C Class Blades
Welcome to the VMware forums!
ESX3.5 does not cater for graphical processors. They are not being used at all.
ESX does not contain an enduser interface, it is a bare metal hypervisor that is supposed to run virtual machines.
Those virtual machines are to be accessed from a workstation machine, the ESX server itself does not provide access to these virtual machines directly.
The only way you could use those graphical processors is by using hosted VMware solutions which are run on top of a normal operating system like windows or linux.
hope this helps,

I have the same question since 2010 (http://communities.vmware.com/thread/103067) and it seems to me that the experts (not so experts as can repair) always think of using GPGPU in guests (VMs) and not for an improvement of the performance of the host (hypervisor).These experts are so narrow-minded as well?!best regards.Angelo
Not sure why you would comment on an really old thread instead of opening a new one but there have been progress in this space, not sure about your exact question though.
Please open a new thread and try to describe your question as detailed as possible.
