Endpoint Device TLB support in VT-d

Following document talks about Device TLB support by VT-d(Chapter 4) in DMA remapping structure.

 

https://software.intel.com/en-us/download/intel-virtualization-technology-for-directed-io-architectu...

 

Which Intel chipset onwards this support was added in VT-d ?

 

I am using "Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2603 v4 @ 1.70GHz" . How to figure out if this had Device TLB support or not ?

 

Thanks,

Rishabh

Hello RGupt29, We got a reply from engineering. It was found that the older Ivy Bridge processor generation already supported TLB, which been older than your processor (Xeon(R) CPU E5-2603 v4 ) which is a Broadwell generation, then it is perfectly fine stating it does support it as well. The reason why this is been inferred this way is because the documentation has been moved due to resent releases and are not available where they used to be. This is why it is a bit difficult to find information. Does this answer your question? I hope it does. If not just let me know. Regards Jose A.
