Intel Xeon Gold missing VT-d support (iommu/ACS)?

Hi all,

The new Intel Xeon Gold CPUs (and the platinum) in their specification sheet, don't report support for VT-d, like the older Xeon families.

Do they really miss VT-d capability? I find it hard to believe that the newer and better CPUs miss such an important feature.

I would also like to ask if the Gold CPUs (6126,6132 ) support ACS, in order to be able to passthrough to VMs, networks adapters like intel XL710 (KVM env).

Thanx,

Spiros

The information available from our end regarding this matter can be found on the following link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/xeon/scalable/xeon-scalable-datasheet-vol-1.html Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family Datasheet, Vol. 1. Page 10 refers to Intel® VT-d, also see note on page 7.

I am double checking your other inquiry.

I'd also like to know if the Skylake-SP CPUs support ACS.

/thread/118865 papage, thank you for your patience.

Please check the links below, VT-d support for the Intel® Xeon® Gold 6138 and 6126 Processors info was included in ark.intel.com:

https://ark.intel.com/products/120476/Intel-Xeon-Gold-6138-Processor-27_5M-Cache-2_00-GHz

https://ark.intel.com/products/120483/Intel-Xeon-Gold-6126-Processor-19_25M-Cache-2_60-GHz

Regarding your second inquiry, for this you will need to verify that with the server board manufacturer in order to know if it supports the Intel® Ethernet Controller 710. Also you will need to check with the VM's software provider, and the operating system developer.

Regards,

Amy C.
