Hardware Requirements

Hyper-V requires a 64-bit processor that includes the following:

  • Hardware-assisted virtualization. This is available in processors that include a virtualization option—specifically processors with Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology.
  • Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) must be available and enabled. Specifically, you must enable Intel XD bit (execute disable bit) or AMD NX bit (no execute bit).
  • SLAT (Second Level Address Translation) is recommended for performance improvements and required for RemoteFX vGPUs.
