Dell is selling its 1850 with Dual Core Xeons. Those are supposed to be VT enabled.

As of a couple of weeks ago, the best information I could Google indicated that the VT chips would start shipping early in Q1 of 2006.  Right now there are only a handful of sample chips on the streets and I think it's safe to say the average person can't get a hold of one.  My personal guess is Intel VT chips will be available to the public in February.

As far as I can tell, AMD Pacifica chips are due out late in Q2 2006.  But I have no idea if Xen's Pacifica support is as mature as it's VT support.

I have an operating system I need to test with Xen. I am told I need to have Intel VT hardware but I can not find anyone selling such hardware.

Can anyone help with finding Intel VT hardware.

What model Dell Poweredge systems are VT enabled?

I could not find any mention of VT on Dell's web site. Where do they say that the Xeon in Poweredge servers are VT enabled?
