Feature Overload

For most consummer, VT-d is unimportant. It's about accelerating in hardware I/O transfer of Virtual Machine. This features let's the Virtual Machine share a phhysical storage between multiple request better.

2) do very IO intensive operations in those VMs
3) need multiple VMs to access a single storage resource
This is irrelevant to you...
