Intel X99 motherboards and VT-D options
Posted on 2015-02-20
I am thinking of buying a X99 motherboard that I can
use for Vmware Workstation.
The two brands that I am thinking of are ASUS and GigaByte.
I have been looking into the Virtualization and plan on
running VMWare Workstation 11. So virtualize windows Server 2012,
Windows 8.1 etc. Plus VMWare ESXi.
So I think for the last one I need Vt-d.
Now I have notice the the ASUS MB's have a few more options for
Vtd Azalea VCp optimizations.
Coherency Support (Non-ISoch)
Coherency Support (ISoch)
However the GigaByte board only allows me to turn VT-d on and off.
So since I can't control these options would they be on by default
on the GigaByte, is there anything 'Disadvantage' I have not being
able to control them? (Or is all this a bit of a non-issue ?)
