Ubuntu – How to make a VM use AMD IOMMU so I can use a 2nd Graphics card


This is related to my question here, However I didn't get the answer of how to Implement it in a VM only of what it was.

Having read that I have a 2nd Graphics card that I don't use, How (if possible) can i make a VM that could make use of that card through the IOMMU feature in my motherboard chipset.

The chipset is an AMD 990X, the 2nd card is an nVidia 8600GT and the Motherboard is an ASUS M5A99xEVO (the first one, as there's a R2.0).

I assume you use VirtualBox, like in your question earlier. However you may want to try KVM. They have a How-to on that topic. I did a quick search on if the M5A99x EVO and its BIOS supports IOMMU and it looks promising, may be you need a BIOS update.
