    Default GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 virtualization


    After searching for what seems like to be a needle in a heystack, I finally found a motherboard that |might| fully support IOMMU. The GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 should, as per this review support it fully using ESXi. - GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - review #9

    Does anyone know anything more? I would like to get a tech to respond because they usually know if it works fully or not.

    I thought that feature was only really needed for Windows 8? I may be wrong.

    But I've used VMware Player and Workstation without issues on 790, 890 chipset MB's See the HTPC/Home Server Rig in my sig.
