Hi all,

I'm interested in trying out VT-d (in Intel) or IOMMU (in AMD).  From reading, 
AMD 890FX chipset has support for IOMMU.  But, most 890FX motherboards are 
"consumer" grade, and they have tendency to lie or are flaky.  And, there is no 
"consumer" chipset (ie. P55, P67, X58, etc) from Intel that supports VT-d.  X58 
was to support it, but Intel said that was misprint.  This means going with 
Intel "server" chipset.

Has anyone used VT-d on Intel platform?  If so, which brand/model?
