Distinct product lines, how I love the

Citing from Wikipedia:

The following modern Intel processors include support for VT-x:

  • Pentium 4 662 and 672
  • Pentium Extreme Edition 955 and 965 (not Pentium 4 Extreme Edition with HT)
  • Pentium D 920-960 except 945, 925, 915
  • Core Solo U1000 series (not T1000 series)
  • Core Duo T2300, T2400, T2500, T2600, T2700 only, plus L2000 and U2000 series
  • Core 2 Solo (all versions)
  • Core 2 Duo all except E8190, E7xxx (except 7300), E4xxx, T5200-T5550, T5750
  • Core 2 Quad all except Q8200
  • ...

Remark all the exceptions! Now try to find a laptop which does support hardware virtualization :-(. On the bright site: you can try to search on ark.intel.com by the processor code (ie T5200), however you have to take even this information with a grain of salt, since I received contradicting results for some queries...

  1. So, if you want to find all the _solutions_ that use VT or VT-d, then you can use the product search [for] feature page in ARK:
    http://ark.intel.com/searchfeature.aspx

    Just select put the radio buttons to "required" for "Intel® VT" or "Intel® VT-d"

    This will provide you with a much more complete list of full solutions (processor + chipset)
