Q: How can I easily check if my hardware supports virtualization features such as Second Level Address Translation?

A: The Microsoft Windows Sysinternals page displays the updated Coreinfo program with a new -v switch that lists information about the processor and its virtualization feature support, including Intel and AMD SLAT implementations.

When I typed

D:\Programs\Tools>coreinfo -v

into my machine, it returned this information:

Coreinfo v3.0 - Dump information on system CPU and memory topology
