That is, if vt-d works in Vbox yet. But, I thought maybe the only way right now to get any sort of performance improvement.
I'm just asking...
Seems to me a lot has to happen for Vbox to take 'generic video card' and produce much in terms of performance when playing games......
The CPU is not that important in case of AMD, but the chipset. Every series 9 chipset and 890FX can be used for that.
As far as I remember, Xen is the only VGA pass-through capable VM platform. (As far as I can see VBox is PCI-E pass-though capable, but not VGA pass-through.)
