    We really really need this, would prefer Hyper-V to VMware or Xen, but have to go with what actually works. Not going back to inferior Intel.

    It should be cheap and correspond to AMDCPU with many cores.
    I believe in Microsoft.

    I'm now going to have to purchase a very expensive Intel machine because of this. It will be more expensive than the more powerful AMD alternative that I would have preferred.

    how ling we need to wait ? buying intel processor because of this feature is just not smart

    Nested Virtualization for for whole AMD-V is needed urgently. MS could earn so munch more $Cash selling Server Licences for existing AMD Computing Centers

    Considering AMD has better chips than Intel for power users where high thread count is important (ie virtualization) and will for the next few years at least, this is unbelievable that MS has not prioritized this.

    Is nested virtualization on the future roadmap for AMD chips? If so what is the time frame?

  • Markus Hilfiker commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please integrate/activate this feature for AMD Ryzen and Epyc. I do not understand, that this is not done already.

  • Dre Gilley commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    AMD has released CPUs in the last year that are heavily competing with Intel in the datacenter. The lack of this now workaday feature is unacceptable!

    I don't understand why this is not available.
    This is a bad practice from Microsoft by favour Intel over AMD
