What is the difference in hardware between Intel-VT and AMD-V?

I am currently reading Virtual Machines: Versatile Platforms for Systems and Processes chapter eight and Intel-VT is mentioned there but I can not find anithing specific about AMD technology.


Either Intel-VT and AMD-V are an implementation of some processor instruction that allow operating system to work well with virtualization.

Basically, i think that, they are the different name of almost the same technology implementation. I don't think that could be a lot of difference between the two ..
