Need support for virtualization technology for robust platforms offering a scalable virtualization environment? You'll benefit from AMD's Virtualization Technology. Also known as AMD-V™, this set of hardware extensions enables better use of resources helping to improve the effectiveness of clients, servers, and data centers. The benefits of AMD-V include more efficient creation of virtual machines simultaneously running multiple operating systems, more improved application responsiveness when switching between virtual machines, accelerated application performance through memory management, enabling live migration of virtual machines, and improved integrity and security.
From an architecture perspective, AMD 64 allows multiple cores — each having its own L1 and L2 caches — to be totally integrated within a single processor. From a technology standpoint, AMD 64 doubles the number of processor registers giving you the benefit of running either 32-bit or 64-bit software applications.
Enhanced Virus Protection
Also called EVP, Enhanced Virus Protection works with Windows Vista or Windows
XP SP2 to help protect computers against malicious viruses, worms, and Trojan
horses that can wreak havoc with your system and your data.
EVP works by designating areas of system memory for data only, meaning code
may only be read from or written to but not executed. If your computer does
get a virus, this built-in security technology can help keep it contained to
a specific location and make it easier to remove it from system memory.
