Question - is PCoIP (or Blast) Encoding offload to the MxGPU supported?

 

Brief Background - I have my S7150 card up and running in esxi 6.7, and I'm going through benchmark testing.  Everything is mostly working.  However, the CPU is running at 25% for the PCoIP server.  I was told that most or all the PCoIP (or Blast) encoding would be done by the MxGPU.  If this is possible, I'm not sure how to enable it?  (I would have guessed it would have been enabled by default?)
