Does your CPU have what it needs to run Hyper-V 3.0 with Windows 8?

Posted by essjae on November 28, 2011

Mark Russinovich does it again with a sweet little tool, CoreInfo.

Coreinfo is a command-line utility that shows you the mapping between logical processors and the physical processor, NUMA node, and socket on which they reside, as well as the cache’s assigned to each logical processor.

You will need to download, extract and run as an administrator with the -v option.

-v Dump only virtualization-related features including support for second level address translation.
(requires administrative rights on Intel systems).
