Thread-topic: [Xen-users] AMD-V or VT

Current AMD chips support nested paging, which will improve memory performance for virtualized guests.  I believe Xen has had support for nested paging for some time.  Intel’s next generation chips support this, but I think the only chips available with this feature right now is their Core i7 line.  Obviously, check my facts before making a purchase, but I no one else pointed this out so I thought I’d say something.
