    Here is another option with AM3 socket. Anyone know if THIS has the IOMMU option exposed ?

    Link
    More info
    Also has intel nics and there is a version with onboard sas.

    2 of the 3 models also support ikvm...(OOB management maybe?)
    Edit: The manual shows IOMMU support! ANyone tested it? The major downside I see with this board is NO SOUND onboard....

    A quick Google of the Northbridge chipset (SR5670) yeilds the following:
    1 - http://www.amd.com/us/Documents/4758...pset_brief.pdf
    2 - http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/cont..._Fioranov3.pdf
    3 - VTdHowTo - Xen Wiki

    It looks like it has it, and because it's a server motherboard, it is even more possible to have it enabled and supported correctly in the BIOS.

    Best of luck!

    Edit: Oh I didn't see that you already found out that it is officially supported. Well if it's in the manual, then I would think it works out of the box, then it's up to the software to use it correctly.

    Hello,
    I need to know if this asus motherboard has iommu bios support because it has other features I need (pcie 4x slot and ecc ram support):

    ASUS M4A89TD Pro

    This is not a crosshair motherboard.

    Thanks you in advance!

    Didn't we already ascertain that all Asus 890FX boards had the correct BIOS extensions?

    I have ready many times this thread and it is not really evident from me that all asus 890fx have iommu bios support.

    It seems that official asus reply was only about crosshair variants.

    I have downloaded manual of ASUS M4A89TD Pro and I see in it bios support for ecc but no bios entry for iommu.

    So I ask for help.

    Thanks again,
    Mario

    Then you haven't read this thread really good. 10 days ago there was a post with a link to Asus forum: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Forum- IOMMU support in BIOS (like for Crosshair IV) ?

    There the asus support confirms that the two variants of the M4A89TD support IOMMU.

    Asrock obviously has no interest in supporting iommu. Today I got this answer from support:


    Sorry for lat reply. Taiwan was still checking this issue. And they told us:Again IOMMU also need CPU to support. Till now, AMD has no plan to support IOMMU on desktop CPU (AM3 socket).Also "IOMMU" not list on our 890FX Deluxe3 specification Please 890FX Deluxe3 link:ASRock > Products > 890FX Deluxe3 In feature, AMD release that CPU, we will borrow it, and test it.Any news will update to you.Thanks your mail.Best regards,ASRock Support</PRE>

    Gigabyte has informed me that they are now working on this, but you guys will all have to give them a few weeks to implement it.

    So be patient and it will be here before you know it, I'll keep you posted once I hear anything more.
