Wow, has Intel totally lost it?
I knew that that they silently copied AMD's 64-bit architecture when their own development efforts failed. But I didn't know until now that they did such a poor job of it!
Omitting the IOMMU just leads to the sort of addressing headaches that should have been left back in the early 90s. Did they really think it would increase their die size that much??
