It's not in their driver's "README" file.

Not certain. The idea that nVidia artificially limits the use of
the non-pro cards in VMs in their drivers are only speculations.
There is a possibility that certain BIOS and/or hardware features
are missing in the gaming cards.

Yeah, AMD are pretty good for computing. And they don't seem to
limit floating-point performance as severely as nVidia for
non-"professional" cards.
