Is there a problem with running EVE-NG on AMD?
EVE-NG itself is a hypervisor. This would be the reason
EVE-NG supports VT-x but indicates it does not support AMD-V. However,
EVE-NG can still work without VT-x, it will have the following certain restrictions.
- 64 bits (x86_64) appliances won’t work.
- Poor performances should be expected with 32 bits (i386) appliances.
EVE-NG System Requirements
I wanted to clarify, are there any known issues with AMD processors when running EVE-NG?
There would indeed be issues with running EVE-NG in an AMD system. You wouldn't be able to run 64-bit virtual appliances and 32-bit appliances would have a poor performance. So if the CCNP and CCIE virtual labs require 64-bit hardware, you would be unable to run them, on your new AMD system.
It does mean that
EVE-NG only supports being installed to physical Intel hardware since it appears to only support, Intel's hardware virtualization VT-x x86 extension. However, that means you could, in theory, run a 32-bit virtual machine within a supported operating system, within a supported hypervisor (VMWare).
Are AMD-V/RVI and Intel CPU VT-x/EPT interchangeable?
AMD-V and Intel VT-x are both x86 extensions that allow for hardware virtualization but they are NOT interchangeable since they are not identical.
