RE: Optiplex 760

Jump to solution

I have a Dell OptiPlex 760 with OM858N motherboard (Intel chipset Q45/Q43), and a Wolfdale Intel e7300 that apparently doesn't support 64 bit thru the BIOS (A16), so I'm looking to upgrade to an e8000 series Duo Core 2 processor and need some advice on which processor to go purchase and how to get this so the BIOS will allow virtualization so I can have 64 bit capabilities.

Help appreciated!

Thanks - Rick

Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)  is supported on Optiplex all the way back to the GX620 with Pentium D 960  2006.

VT-d is not guaranteed on ANY of the core series.  Not sure what you mean by 64 bit not supported because that too goes back to EMT64 as early as 2005.  None of these systems is a VMWARE ESX server with XEON processors.
