I would like to ask if anybody has experiance with kvm/qemu/libvirt virtualization with the following processors:

    "AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X"

    "AMD Ryzen 7 2700X"


Do the aforementioned processors support the following features or rather their AMD's equivalents?

    VT-d (I/O MMU virtualization)

    VT-x (Virtualization)

    VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)


How is it performing? Maybe some issues noticed?


It's going to be used for quite large virtualization environment (home lab but used intensively). Dozen or more simultenous guest going to be a norm.

Intended guests: Linux and Windows


I do not overclock, I do not game. The CPU I look for must just reliably virtualize guests and do not make troubles;-)


Last question: do these processors support VmWare ESXi 6.7?
