As the title says - are there any limitations (hardware, software or licensing) of Hyper-V as found in Windows 8 client OS compared to this feature in Windows Server 2012?

According to this TechNet article (April, 2012) the following is missing from Client Hyper-V (with respect to Server 8):

  • Remote FX ability to virtualize GPUs
  • live migration of VMs
  • Hyper-V Replica
  • SR-IOV networking
  • virtual Fibre Channel

And there is one unpleasant additional hardware requirement - your CPU must support SLAT. – Borek Aug 20 '12 at 7:53
The lack of RemoteFX was a surprise to me (I can't play video/games smoothly). Otherwise the other features seem to be relevant to data center's for the most part, therefore I can live with it. – Andrew Nov 2 '12 at 2:12
