I'm trying to find documentation about if it is possible present physical HW to one guest.

I'm talking about buy a good graphic card for one host and present it to one guest in order to the guest be able to run some specific program or game that requieres a specific graphic card.

I believe you are looking for something like pci passthrough. I could see a new Blueprint related to the same . This is targeted for Havana 3 milestone . I guess you may have to wait for some more time :)
