Microsoft (the virtualization vendor) says to contact Intel since you are the people who maintain information on each processors capabilities. Kind of leaves the customer in a jam when neither vendor wants to verify compatibility. In this case, I agree with them since I need to know what is different between these 3 processors from an instruction set perspective. You wouldn't expect MS to have that information on hand.
Maybe we can do this a different way. Since I do not have either processor yet (trying to determine which I'll buy), can I somehow get the output of CPUID from each of them so I can compare?
If the information that you need is not located on the datasheets of those processors, then you will need to contact a Field Application Engineer (FAE) trough out any of our local Authorized Intel® Distributors, so they can provide you the information that you need.
You can find a list of Authorized Intel® Distributors at:
When contacting them, please tell them to put you in contact with a Field Application Engineer (FAE).
The datasheets for those processors can be found by selecting one of the processors here:
