Little things that matter in language design
KVM also supports AMD's virtualization extensions (not just Intel's).
Coming soon to a kernel near you

This means Core Duo, Pentium-D 9xx (not 8xx), and Xeons. Maybe a couple others. I have one. Pentium-D on a Asus 945G. (Nice.)
You need to have support in the motherboard also. If you don't have support, but you feel your cpu should support it.. look for a bios upgrade to add support.
For AMD any AM2 socket CPU except Sempron will support the SVM stuff. Also telling is if your AMD cpu supports DDR2 then it will support the extesions.
The userland stuff is essentially a slightly modified Qemu VM.

Actually, being a Pentium-D 9xx it's not enough. It needs to be 9x0.
As an example, a Pentium D 940 has VT support, while 945 doesn't.
