I've been scouring the net (mainly the wikipaedia lists and intel's site. I even pulled out the datasheet for my processor) but I can't seem to answer this question.

Does my Xeon support hardware virtualisation?

The processor in question is a:

"Nocona" (standard-voltage, 90 nm) 2800MHz. Other details can be found here:


I'm pretty sure the answer is no as it's a pretty old server but I can't find a single place which has a definitive yes/no answer so I'm still looking...


There's no Intel-VT hardware in those chips sorry.


Intel has a site for detailed processor specifications, which is pretty hard to find. I searched for a few weeks.

The site is located here. This is the top page for xeons.

The site might come in handy if You might be searching for a replacement processor.

The cpu comparison worked best for me after I marked every processor for comparison and pasted the resulting html table into an openoffice spreadsheet.

  • You're welcome. I researched xeons for my small startup. What do You need those for. – deploymonkey Jun 2 '10 at 22:07
