In fact, we got an engineer sample sometime ago with RD890 chipset

lspci output:

00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 Northbridge only dual slot (2x16) PCI-e GFX Hydra part (rev 02)

And i tested VGA passthrough on RD890, not on SR5690/SR5670. And it has IOMMU inside.

Hello Pasi,

It should have an iommu, but the mobo's are just on the market, haven't tested 
it myself.

Hello Sergey,

Ah if i look at the spec sheets it's not a RD-890 chipset, but a opteron server 

So is RD-890 still ok, aka it has IOMMU support? Has anyone tested it with Xen? Should I remove RD-890 from the wiki pages?


AMD SR5690 + SP5100 (S8212WGM3NR/S8212GM3NR)
AMD SR5670 + SP5100 (S8212GM3NRLE/S8212GM3NR-LE))

Nevertheless good to hear vga passthrough works for you.

Ok so I should add this one.. which one of the various models above is your mb?
