Buit sandy-bridge E doesn't support hardware virtualization so this product is useless in a lot of environments.

Please give some references to support your claim, Danthrax.

 

It is my understanding that the new chip will come as a PCI-E board and work with any motherboard that could support a multi-core GPU (it's Larabee revisited).

Although they appeared to have "fixed" it in the c2 stepping chips the c1 chips did not support VT-d. I don't know what you are referring to with regards to pci-e.
