I'm in the same boat - just haven't bought it just yet.Muh... absolutely not amused where this discussion is going. Especially:
Is it a hardware firmware issue or a driver issue? Why are a lot of sites touting this as the 'ultimate' virtualization or 'must get' platform (Tinkertry, ServeTheHome, etc)... What is heavy virtualization btw?
PS. Offtopic -> Intel Xeon D-1540 10GbE X552/X557 driver/VIB for VMware ESXi 6 on Supermicro 5028D-TN4T system's X10SDV-TLN4F mobo expected by early Nov. 2015. See post @ Tinkertry
- According to Anandtech's previous review:
"Speaking of networking, the SoC will have bandwidth for two 10GbE connections direct, which will work both in 1G and 2.5G modes. These are optimized for virtualization, allowing 128 Tx and Rx queues per port as well as SR-IOV and VMDq enhancements. With the integration on board, driver support should also be easier to manage rather than external controller solutions."
