While I read in another thread (http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=63086) that Nehalem desktop CPUs may have extended page table (EPT) support as part of their virtualization capabilities, it wasn't clear to me from this post whether all Nehalem-based CPUs will have EPT. Will they? For example, will all Nehalem-based Xeons have EPT? If not, is there a list of exactly which processors (if there are any that are not Nehalem-based I would be interested in knowing anyway) support EPT? I have only found a list (http://ark.intel.com/VTList.aspx) of which support virtualization overall.
