    Hi all,

    I'm buying a 3770k, want to use it for all its glory in many different ways, but one of the things I use my pc for is virtualising various servers for testing purposes, normally using VMWare Workstation. I had a look on Intel's website and it says its missing a few of the virtualisation features, (Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d))

    Will this affect me at all?

    You are only missing these and it will not hurt your VMware experience.

    Intel® vPro Technology
    Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)

    I'm using a 2500k at home and it runs as well (if not better) for VMs than the X5660 I have in my workstation at work. (2500k is missing the same features as the Ivy Bridge version).
