After contacting Asus, MSI and Gigabyte, this is what I got back.

Only motherboards with the QXX chipsets and certified with the Intel VPro support the Vt-d virtualization technology.

I'm not sure about MSI though, because this is what I got from their support: "Almost board could support. Please refer to our website, http://www.msi.com/product/mb/.";

The problem is that QXX chipset are only used for mini and micro ATX motherboards with very few expansion card slots making the Vt-d kind of useless.
