HP z8 compatibility with CONNECTX-5 VPI

Hello All,

Currently we are using  HP Z820 Workstations for our HPC cluster. It uses  MT27500 Family [ConnectX-3] for infiniband. 

As part of cluster refresh, we are planning to upgrade HP Z820 workstations to HP z8 workstations. For Infiniband adopters, I am checking on NVidia  CONNECTX-5 VPI. 

I would like to understand the compatability of  CONNECTX-5 VPI with Z8 workstations and what factors to consider when we choose it.

I appreciate any help regarding this.
