I would like to setup Windows Server 2008 R2 using RemoteFX at home, for a couple of users to all use the server (instead of buying each user a seperate computer).

I have been trying to find what processors (Intel based) that support the SLAT that is apparently needed to run RemoteFX. I currently have a computer that has an i3 processor, but after testing it shows that it will not support it.

Does anyone know which processors from Intel do support this?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

You realise that you still need some form of client to connect to the terminal session that's using RemoteFX, right? – Mark Henderson Dec 30 '11 at 8:21

Intel states that the feature is available in all their Nehalem-based CPUs with virtualization support; namely in Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium G6950 and appropriate Xeons. It is not available in Core 2-based and earlier Intel CPUs.

All Nehalem and later processes have EPT support as part of VT-x. In the Intel product catalog, look for processors with the name format iX-XXX (e.g., i5-XXX). Q9400 doesn't have it because it is based on Core2.

This is the official list of Intel processors that support RemoteFX. This list is pretty thorough going back almost 10 years. To support RemoteFX, the processor only needs VT-x and EPT.

All i3 processors support RemoteFX.
