Can someone *please* explain why everyone says that VT-d is a chipset-ONLY feature, when all the processors at ark.intel.com have a "Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)" tag saying either yes or no?
For example, try to select two brand new desktop Core i7 processors at ark.intel.com:
Using the compare-feature, reveals that Core i7-2600 supports both VT-x and VT-d, while Core i7-2600K only supports VT-x....same thing with other processors. What is the point of this when tons of comments from even Intel employees claims that VT-d is a chipset-ONLY feature and not a CPU feature?
Thank in advance...
