Yeah I think that move was aimed more at what I call the "Homelab" crowd of people but they understand is good practice: The same people that are interesting as hobbyist on recycled servers, raspberry pi clusters and gpu passthrough set ups on their home well, mostly have jobs on IT.Interesting. I was not aware that nVidia had enabled some "pro" features on consumer cards. I would be surprised, however, if they enabled full compute potential on consumer cards as they can charge substantially more money for compute cards made for HPC.
In fact I think in no small measure people like the homelab side of miniature enterprise environments and software as a way to practice and build up their resume on these subjects so they will be the ones eventually weighting in and calling the shots when companies purchase infrastructure and such.
So I don't think Nvidia means for people to fully use consumer cards for enterprise features, but it doesn't hurts than anyone with a Pascal era GPU or better can now actually play around Hyper V or ESXi or Proxmox set ups on their home and then go praise Nvidia products at work and just solidify their status as a now serious enterprise infrastructure provider.
