Compatibility with Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)

Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) consists of technology components that support virtualization of platforms based on Intel® Processors, thereby enabling the running of multiple operating systems and applications in independent partitions.

There are two types of virtualization:

Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)

Improves the fundamental flexibility and robustness of traditional software-based virtualization solutions by accelerating key functions of the virtualized platform, including:

  • Speeding up the transfer of platform control between the guest operating systems (OSs) and the virtual machine manager (VMM)/hypervisor
  • Enabling the VMM to uniquely assign I/O devices to guest OSs
  • Optimizing the network for virtualization with adapter-based acceleration
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for Directed I/O (Intel® VT-d) Provides additional performance, security and flexibility by providing the VMM with the following capabilities:
  • I/O device assignment
  • DMA remapping
  • Interrupt remapping
  • Reliability

Intel® Desktop Boards require the following components to support Intel® VT or Intel® VT-d:

  • Intel® Processor that supports Intel VT
  • BIOS with Intel VT or VT-d support (found on the Security menu in BIOS setup)
  • A third party VMM (virtual machine manager) may also be required

To see if your processor supports Intel VT, refer to Does my processor support Intel® Virtualization Technology?

The following Intel® Desktop Boards support Intel VT:
