After trying OpenSUSE Leap as a guest OS in Tumbleweed, I realized that the video performance was terrible. This makes sense, because there is no hardware acceleration. This can be mitigated with GPU passthrough, but the problem is that I only have one good GPU.
My current setup consists of:
- RTX 2070 Super Windforce (yes, a NVIDIA GPU unfortunately)
- AMD Ryzen 7
There are three options:
- Set up single GPU passthrough with my RTX 2070 Super video card (if possible)
- Insert a crappy GTX 740 from my old PC into my current one and use it for my host OS.
- Option two, but with a better video card
The second option might not be that bad. I only want to use my host OS for personal stuff. That includes mainly coding and socializing. I want to install two VMs: one for work and one for gaming and music production. The GTX 740 might be sufficient.
So my question is, what should I do and why?
