I have recently added a Nvidia 1080 inside a single node off my proxmox server.
The reason I want this, is because I am using a VM running bluestacks for a game (24/7) and it doesn't work without a GPU.

So I have it now running that the VM uses my gpu.
But now I want to also move my plex server over so I can improve the transcoding. And make use off the same GPU.
I was reading about vGPU but is it also possible to share a vGPU both to a windows VM as also a Debian LXC container?

For power usage putting two gpu's in a single server is not an option, so this would be the best solution.
 
NVidia only supports vGPU on their 'enterprise' hardware. Consumer/gaming cards do not support it:

I guess your only option would be to pass through the GPU to the Windows VM and then run Plex alongside the Bluestacks emulator.

Can you please share the VM configuration which you running bluestacks on? I have tried many methods to get bluestacks work, but it is always extremely slow.
