Hi all, first time posting. I just got a smoking deal on a 1920X and am looking to upgrade my x79 machine. I run several VMs with hardware passed through so good iommu groups is a must. Also while not needed initially I like the idea of being able to expand the number of passed through devices with pcie bifurcation. Searching online I found several boards that offer this option for raid (as in x4x4x4x4) for nvme drives but have only seen confirmation on the two higher end asrock boards that offer x8x8 and x8x4x4 options. Does anyone know if the lower end asrock phantom board offers this option? Any other boards that would fit my needs? I am hoping as Threadripper 3 is announced and coming into black Friday and cyber Monday I might find a good deal on a x399 motherboard and the more boards I know that fit my needs the better my chances of finding a good deal. Thanks in advance for the help.
Really? I saw this post, the info is old and only at the end does someone say that due to new bios that the asrock boards I listed in my post now have this feature. I was asking if others also do and if the lower end asrock board does. Also asking about iommu groups with bifurcation which I could find nothing on. Now because of this one answer which gave me nothing I did not already see my thread is solved and locked?
