How can I tell if my machines have these new chips?
For Intel, the technology is referred to as Virtualization Technology (catchy, eh?). This was formerly referred to by the code name "Vanderpool." For AMD, the technology is referred to as Secure Virtual Machine, formerly referred to by the code name "Pacifica." Look for either of these branded terms as part of the processor description, and you will know whether you have hardware-enabled virtualization built in.
