I've done a short study on the current VT options: http://stateless.geek.nz/2006/09/11/current-virtualisation-hardware/

I've got a few issues I'm still trying to determine.

It seems that only the Intel Core Duo 2 desktop chipset that supports VT is the Q965/963.

Has anyone seen support for VT on any of the other 965 chipsets? 
Do any of the non-Intel chipsets (nForce 500?) support VT?

Conversely it seems that all AM2 (desktop) socket systems support Pacifica.

How good is the AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU is at supporting HVM?
What about the AM2 motherboards. Is there generic out of the box HVM support for all motherboards?  Are some AM2 motherboards better?

PS: http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/HVM_Compatible_Processors should be updated with the new Opteron's.
However it seems the Xeon 5100s are 15% faster than the Opteron 2000s.
