Hello

There is no processor I'm aware of that supports Intel's version of Second Level Address Translation(SLAT) that they call Extended Page Table(EPT) compatible with the 2950. I just searched online to find out when Intel introduced this technology, it was introduced with the Nehalem architecture. Our first line of servers that supported the Nehalem architecture were 11th generation, there may be some second or third revision 10th generation systems that support it as well. The 2950 is a 9th generation system.

Thanks
