Is there any special motherboard requirement to leverage Intel 82576 Ethernet controller's SR-IOV capability ?

I am trying to deploy Intel DPDK in a virtualized environment on a Laptop. I want to install Intel 82576 NIC card on it to achieve high speed virtualized performance.

Just wondering if it needs any special motherboard capability to leverage it's full potential ?

Hi mohitGupta,

In the BIOS of your motherboard, there should be the option for enabling the virtualization features. You may refer to this reference document
