g2.8xlarge does not support NVIDIA GPUDirect peer to peer transfers

Go to

Two or more GPUs with SM 2.0 or higher capability are required for ./simpleP2P.
Peer to Peer access is not available amongst GPUs in the system, waiving test.

As you can see, g2.8xlarge does not support NVIDIA GPUDirect peer to peer transfers. Only P2 instances have the support.
