    "NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software enables powerful GPU performance for workloads ranging from graphics-rich virtual workstations to data science and AI, enabling IT to leverage the management and security benefits of virtualization as well as the performance of NVIDIA GPUs required for modern workloads. Installed on a physical GPU in a cloud or enterprise data center server, NVIDIA vGPU software creates virtual GPUs that can be shared across multiple virtual machines, accessed by any device, anywhere."

    The simpe "edit" replaces the device id of a graphics card with a device id of an officially supported GPU that has the same feature set. GP102, GP104, TU102, TU104, and GA102 GPUs are supported, and the capability works on Linux os and with KVM virtual machine software.

    After boot the nvidia-vgpud service queries the kernel for all installed GPUs and checks for vGPU capability. This call is intercepted by the vgpu_unlock python script and the GPU is made vGPU capable. If a vGPU capable GPU is found then nvidia-vgpu creates an MDEV device and the /sys/class/mdev_bus directory is created by the system.
    Most linux users can virtualize their high end cards.....for multiple tasks......And here goes CRYPTOMINING
