Description of problem:
Red Hat Virtualization - Planning and Prerequisites Guide
Section: 2.2.5. Hardware Requirements For Device Assignment
NVIDIA now produces both PCIe and NVLink based Tesla GPUs, the latter is a proprietary interconnect which is currently not supported for GPU assignment. The section noted above states:
"For GPU support, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 supports PCI device assignment of NVIDIA K-Series Quadro (model 2000 series or higher), GRID, and Tesla as non-VGA graphics devices. Currently up to two GPUs may be attached to a virtual machine in addition to one of the standard, emulated VGA interfaces. The emulated VGA is used for pre-boot and installation and the NVIDIA GPU takes over when the NVIDIA graphics drivers are loaded. Note that the NVIDIA Quadro 2000 is not supported, nor is the Quadro K420 card."
I would like to insert "PCIe-based" in reference to the supported devices here somewhere. As noted in the bug linked below, "PCI device assignment" is the correct term for the overall technology as it does support PCI more broadly, we're only trying to clarify the supported set of NVIDIA GPU devices as limited to those supporting PCIe. Perhaps:
"..PCI device assignment of PCIe-based NVIDIA..."
