I looking to buildapc with Vt-d enabled(because i use Virtual machines alot on top of the OS) i need some help in understanding Vt-d on Motherboard vs Processor.
The processor i choosed was i7 4770 which is Vt-d and Vt-x enabled. If the processor is vt-d enabled do i still need the motherboard with Vt-d enabled?
I looked at some of the intel motherboards compatible with i7 4770, I saw some differences in virtualization on mother boards i have choosed (Intel DQ87PG, DH87MC, DZ87KLT-75K). The comparison chart on the Intel Website shows that DQ87PG is VT-D enabled but the others are not. http://ark.intel.com/compare/70898,70903,69045
So my question here is If the processor is Vt-d,Vt-x enabled do i still need the motherboard to have Vt-d enabled in order to run virtual machines on top the OS?
Why are you only looking at Intel motherboards? Intel has signaled it's intention to get completely out of the motherboard business in a year or so. Go with a company that will be making motherboards for many years, such as Asus, Gigabyte, or MSI (among others).
Thanks for the suggestion but i have looked for the Asus and Gigabyte as my options but on there models i didnot found if the motherboards support Virtualization or not. Even i didnot found the Max TDP on there motherboards.
