I've been reading on the net that since october 2012, nvidia have been working on a VIB for their high-end workstation/server cards for ESXi but haven't ever seen the VIB file for it...
I read recently on the vmware help forums that someone said VMware released some 5.2 version of some software and that was basically the signal that the nvidia VIB was ready and it'd be released within a week...

So I think that week's gone now and still nothing. Anyone happen to have any more information about this VIB file or whatnot?
[I tried the alternative method of using directpath passthru with an nvidia quadro on a single VM and it refused to boot, detected a bootable CD image and the bootable hard drive but said 'unsuccessful' when trying to boot from either using EFI until I removed the directpath passthru and it worked normal again :s]
