Hyperv - support for hardware

With Virtual Server/Virtual PC the guest sessions were very restricted as far as hardware support for higher end video cards and sound cards.  How does Hyperv stack up?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

HyperV is limited in the same way. If you want to use high end video cards you are not going to access it through a VM. Sorry for the bad news.
Good luck.
