    I wonder if anyone has more specific information if any of the
    currently shipping Intel CPUs and/or chipsets are Virtualization
    capable?

    In this <URL:http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,121019,00.asp>,
    Gregory Bryant of Intel seems to imply that the capability is already
    in some shipping processors and/or chipsets.

    It would be nice to be able to buy VT capable systems right now, even
    if it needed enabling the features at a leter time with microcde
    upgrade, some register bit tweaking or whatever.

    Active Management Technology is also toutedd here and there. But
    where are the specifications? And it is already shipping in most new
    chip sets.

  2. I agree, but I don't think this is the Intel Policy.

    After all, since from summer 2004 to june 2005, they have sold a lot of
    Pentium 4 prescott based with EM64T disabled, and they is no way to enable
    it...
