I'm in the market for a socket 1156 i7 processor and have narrowed it down to the i7-860s or i7-875k. I noticed when comparing the two on Intel's website that the i7-860s has these features, but the i7-875k does not:
- Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
- Intel Trusted Execution Technology
One of the uses for my PC is running multiple virtual machines. Since the 875k does not have VT-d, should I get the i7-860s instead?
yep i would go for the 860s specially compared to the 875k if you are not planning to overclock
