Finally the ability to partition a single GPU across multiple VMs/Containers is now available and for FREE ... This feature was only previously available on Tesla based GPUs via NVIDIA Grid which requires you to purchase an enterprise license.

Now you can share 1 GPU for across multiple VMs for say Plex Transcoding, Remote Gaming Server via Parsec, or just a graphics accelerated remote workstation also via ParSec.


This feature is already free to use on Win 10 Pro via Hyper-V :-)

That's crazy! Not even EPYC with 8-channel RAM has enough bandwidth to handle the incoming stream.

Just the doing the send/receive will require a supercomputer of some sort.
Small pedantic rant: After reading the articles, the "B" in Tb should be lowercase.

This is amazing stuff. Starts off slow and I was about to tune out, and then he starts to explain why they call their stuff "4D" and into the rabbit hole we go.

So I bought a couple of Intel DC 480GB MLC SSDs back in April for relatively cheap from a local reseller
so I could start replacing the consumer SSDs which were wearing out crazy fast on my Proxmox/FreeNAS/Plex server.
I was skeptical at first as these were being falsely advertised as new but were in fact "refurbished" when I
got them as mine had already logged in little over 20000 hours with 2% wearout.

Anyway I wasn't particularly miffed as long as these were still covered by Intel's Enterprise warranty and
which I confirmed they were so I actually bought 6 more afterwards. LOL.



Fast forward to last weekend, one of the Intel drives in service suddenly became unavailable. I think it died mostly
due to heat, being placed too close to the GPU, more than actual wear since upon checking the proxmox logs it kept
on reporting this particular drive as always reaching mid 60C while the other one was normal.

Although I've read about Intel's legendary reputation when it comes down to customer support in the Enterprise space
on STH and reddit, I haven't personally experienced it myself so either this was going to be a total boss move or
I was going to look like a fool for purchasing a bunch of second hand enterprise hardware.

I figured that I should just wing it and file an RMA using only the serial number and some screenshots
to prove that the drive was actually dead. I didnt have any receipt nor legal proofs of purchase that I was the
original owner of the drives as these technically second hand. 

In less than 2 days, not only did I get approved RMA with no further questions asked but Intel did all legwork ie
shipping labels and went as far as applying for the OMB permit themselves on my behalf. Talk about VIP treatment.

^ That's super cool. I wonder if their consumer drives get the same VIP treatment.

Nice. I've had good direct-to-manufacturer RMA experiences with Seagate, WD and Corsair myself.

@splerdu,

I actually have Intel 545s that are heavily worn out but still alive so I haven't filed a claim for these yet. below are the drives which I have managed to wear out a little over 2 years now. These are mostly 120-128GB in capacity. Proxmox should be called SSD killers. I haven't figured out a way to reduce logging in proxmox but if anyone knows let me know how.

lol Proxmox is an SSD killer talaga. Doesn't help that the staff/devs are assholes on their forums whenever someone points that out (proxmox killing SSDs). A few versions back someone suggested stopping certain services.

I suggest installing it on an MLC drive, or use something like a RAMdrive with timed asynchronous saves to disk. You'll obviously want UPS protection if considering the second option.

@splerdu,

Yep, the refurb'd Intel DC SSDs that I got are all MLCs. It is the S3520 line (480GB).  I've pretty much gone the refurb route these days unless I can get them brand new and for a great deal and prefer Intel when possible. Too bad Intel is moving away from the SSD business.

Here's a full list of my Intel DC SSD collection so far.
1 x Intel DC SSD P3700 800GB (refurb)
8 x Intel DC SSD S3520 480GB (refurb)
2 x Intel DC SSD P4500 2TB (HPE OEM; new old stock)
1 x Intel Optane 900p 280GB (retail :-( )

The P4500 2TB drives were an absolute steal as I got them for $40 less than the cheapest 2TB NVME consumer drive you can find in PCHub. Wish I've gotten at least 2 more just to hoard. lol. :-)

So we've gotten used to those vids of people playing a bunch of different instruments and mixing the clips together into one full song... Well none of that easy mode stuff for this guy!

i guess the keyphrase here is DIRECT-TO-MANUFACTURER.

now where can we buy these bargain intel enterprise SSDs? :D :D :D
