I understand what you are saying about the AM2 socket and AMD-V. Regardless because of previous product on the market I still found it difficult when putting a system together to make sure I had the right processor.

The only way I could be sure I was right, was making the model (ADO...) of the processor against the list on wikipedia.  Descriptions of processors sometimes aren't sufficently clear on webstores.

So in summary: Any AMD processort (except Sempron) that uses DDR2 memory will have AMD-V.
Note that although the AMD-V technology is in the same product that introduces DDR2, there's no tie between the two other than the fact that they are introduced in the same product version.

Can you also clarify for me that support for AMD-V is independent of chipset. ie. Any system with a AMD-V processor will do HVM.

Given Intel seem to have only one desktop chipset that supports VT, might be an interest point of difference for marketing.
