    Can Intel D945GCCR for desktop, Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4500 for notebook processors be replaced with the ones with virtualisation feature and perform as well as before? can you recommend suitable processors for replacing?

      Dear Intel Community,

       

      (for Intel Processor)

       

      I bought a desktop PC in about 6 years ago. The core product is D945GCCR, version is AAD78647-301, cpu is Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.20GHZ. It has no virtualisation feature.

       

      Can this core/cpu be replaced with one with virtualization feature, without replacing any other components and still perform well as before? can you recommend suitable Intel core/cpu/processor for this purpose?

       

      in the Ubuntu terminal, run the below commands and get the corresponding return:

       

      1) dmidecode | grep -A4 'Base Board Information'

      Base Board Information

          Manufacturer: Intel Corporation

          Product Name: D945GCCR

          Version: AAD78647-301

          Serial Number: BTCR71100WJ1

       

      2) dmidecode -t 4 | grep Socket

          Socket Designation: LGA 775

       

      from the return of 2), the socket type is LGA 775, can this verify that the motherboard of this desktop PC support virtualization (it was bought in about 6 years ago)? if not, how to check whether or not the motherboard of this desktop PC support virtualization?

       

      By the way, my Compaq 620 Energy Star notebook was bought about 2 years ago, and the processor is Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4500, but without virtualization feature as well. Can it be replaced with one with virtualization feature and perform well as before? can you help to recommend a suitable one with virtualization feature?

       

      Thank you very much for your help !
