Check Intel Processor Features

Q: How can I check all the features of my Intel processor even if I have Hyper-V installed?

A: There are numerous utilities that can query a processor and return its capabilities (e.g., Sysinternals' coreinfo.exe). However, many of these utilities don't work correctly if a hypervisor is installed. Intel actually has its own utility, the Intel Processor Identification Utility. This tool provides details about the exact version and speed of the processor. In addition, it contains a tab that lists all the CPU technologies, as the following figure shows.

In this case the processor doesn't support the Extended Page Table feature (Secondary Level Address Translation, SLAT), which means you can't use it with RemoteFX.
