VT-d is chipset functionality. So it depends on the chipset.

At least initially the non Intel chipsets and lowend chips are unlikely
to get IOMMUs I guess.

There might be some exceptions. e.g. the GPU vendors seem
to want to to their own IOMMUs, so perhaps graphic devices
might have them anyways.
