I'm trying to get an understanding of the hardware requirements for Hyper-v 3.0 in Windows Server 8.
I want to run this in a lab environment but want to be sure I have the hardware needed.
I've come across comments that a SLAT enabled processor will be required to run Hyper-V with RemoteFX (same as now)
or if you want to use Hyper-V in the desktop versions of Windows 8.
The confusing area for me (and I'm no expert) is that i read of support for SR-IOV, at least for the
virtual switch in Hyper-V 3.0.
Wouldn't SR-IOV require passthrough? vt-d from an intel standpoint with a chipset and bios that supports passthrough?

Hi,Hyper-V on Windows 8 Client version requires the processor to support Secondary Level Address Translation (SLAT). Hyper-V on Windows 8 Server version doesn’t need SLAT(the same as previous version), SLAT is required only if you want to use RemoteFX.
