I'm a PhD student at KU Leuven and I'm looking to buy a new system for my research. It should have extensive virtualization support (EPT, Direct I/O, ...). Since one of the first things I'm going to do is do some benchmarks on TPM performance, and that's where the problem starts, it should also provide an integrated TPM chip. So I was looking at the DQ77CP motherboard. While on a comparison page it states that it is equipped with an iTPM, it does not specify this in any other documentation that I found. It does state that it supports Advanced Management Technology (AMTv8.0). Does this always include an iTPM? The technical document specification states that it is shipped with an Nuvoton NPCT420 TPM. So is it possible to switch between the TPMs (which would be great, by the way)? How exactly?
Thanks in advance!
