That’s interesting, and not in a good way.
I don’t have that machine any more, but I checked the hcl and it says
3210M - I asked the person who uses it now and they said 4.0 works fine.
What’s odd is that the HCL has other reports from users with that
chip set claiming VT-d, as well as reports on other hardware where it
I looked at the reports backing the “Working” entries in case there was
any mistake, and there doesn’t seem to be.
So either there’s some mistake in the the hcl reports, there were
chips out there with capability outwith the official Intel spec, the
chips misreport themselves, or something else. ??? Paranoia runs deep.
This is supposed to be a simple buyer’s guide that can be relied on. I
know that this configuration works, but I’ll leave the final decision to @Sven
I also realise that specifying the chipset is really geeky, and not in
the spirit of this list.
I’ll be sure to report the speed first in other reports - @Sven if you
PM me I can provide that for the machines I’ve reported on so far, if
you like - since I cant edit, I would just pollute the list.
