Intel's Yonah and Sossaman will have VT

Posted on Wednesday, Aug 24 2005 @ 18:12 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Yesterday Intel confirmed at the IDF that the mobile Yonah processor, and its low-power Xeon derivative Sossaman, will feature Virtualization Technology (VT) support.
Sossaman takes Yonah and adds dual-processor support, along with a 36-bit physical address bus to allow the chip to handle up to 64MB of physical memory - typically 400MHz ECC DDR 2, connected via the E7520 'Lindenhurst' chipset Intel expects Sossaman to be used with. That said, the E7520 supports only 32GB of RAM.
