Z77E-ITX

The Z77E-ITX is definitely supported in firmwares 1.30 and 1.40 (I've tried these).

I'm not too sure if it does for 1.60 and 1.70:

1.70 12/17/2012 Add "Multi-Core Acceleration" for k series CPU.

1.60 12/7/2012 1. Improve monitor compatibility. 2. Support UEFI PXE boot. 3. Modify VT-d Capability will be unsupported after update BIOS.

good find!

I think that just means it will be on by default if the CPU supports it, not that it will not be available. Hopefully we will see a report soon.

Thanks for your post! This is exactly what I was looking for. There are enough rumors going around about this or that board supporting VT-d. I hope very much that we can get a list here that is based on facts and experience. When I have some more time I will update my original post and add the input.

ASRock Z77E-ITX: BIOS release 1.60 (and later ?) will NOT support VT-d. See http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77E-ITX/index.us.asp?cat=Download&os=BIOS.

Ah this is where semantics fail us! It reads: "Modify VT-d Capability will be unsupported after update BIOS." In BIOS terms this means the capability to modify VT-d will be disabled, meaning that if the chip supports it, it will be enabled. I have a feeling that maybe people were attempting to turn it on when their CPU didn't support the feature and running into problems. For instance, I can modify the VT-d option, but it was enabled by default on my system.

Unfortunately (as is the case in many instances) something might be lost in translation. It could mean that it is not even available.

Still even more interesting about how this is worded is the term "Unsupported." They could have said "Discontinued" or "Removed," but they chose another word that is very ambiguous. This could simply mean that they do not support any issues that arise from using this feature (like not booting, etc.)

Only time will tell, but let's not be hasty.

This person seems to have tried it (they have an i7 3770, which supports VT-d):

http://mo.kerosoft.com/0198

Unfortunately I can't read Japanese and a Google translation into English just makes it more confusing.

I contacted Asrock a few days ago and got this reply this morning (I asked about 1.60 and 1.70):


Thanks for contacting ASRock.

Z77E-ITX support VT-D in BIOS P1.70.

Please feel ease to use BIOS P1.70.


Maybe this will also be the case for all Z77 Asrock bioses after the one that says "Modify VT-d Capability will be unsupported after update BIOS.".

Thanks for updating us! I'm sure some people will be glad to hear that.

It seems the guy got a 2.3 BIOS on his ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard and flashed it to 2.40, upon which VT-d was available again. That's how I read the Google translation, which is quite a challenge.

I guess for anyone out to buy that board or perhaps upgrade the BIOS, they should first contact Asrock to get confirmation that it will work.
