You can always ask your hw vendor.  They should be able to tell you
definitively if their hardware supports the technology.
I tried this several times, but I didn't met anyone of the vendors, who sell cpu's, who even knew about virtualization, and if I told of Pacifica or like that, it was like they heard the word for the first time. Also I tried that kind of reqest directed to the manufacturer itself. But here the same: no specifications available, no one of the staff knowing about Pacifica.
Maybe they don't like to be bound to any claim of ability of their cpu's.

This was about three month ago. Don't know, if it had changed since then.

The only testimonial, I would trust to, is if I hear of some people, who are running it successfully, having precise description of the environment, they use.
Good advice. If you get that in writing, then you have a piece of paper
to shove down their throat if it doesn't work too! (Say for example that
the motherboard and processor don't match up..)
