VMware vSphere 6.X + VMware VSAN + AMD S7150x2 with Citrix XENDesktop 7.9 on top of it

Hello, I would like to ask whether AMD has a roadmap of supporting Citrix XenDesktop VDI with its S7150x2 MxGPU?


Or more precisely: would the AMD`s MxGPU protocol of S7150x2 work in a topology of

HP GEN9 servers with AMD S7150x2 in it + VMware vSphere 6.X + VMware VSAN. And Citrix XENDesktop 7.9 on top of it (instead of VMware Horizon View)?


HP offers the AMD S7150x2 in their HW configurators already.

There exists an AMD driver for VMware vSphere to work with this AMD GPU.

What would stop Citrix XenDesktop from working with this infrastructure configuration underneath?


I would appreciate even unofficial or between the lines information.


Thank you very much.
