Virtual machines support certain processor features.

  • The same as the processor on the host computer.
  • One virtual processor on a host system that has one or more logical processors.
  • Up to 16 virtual processors (sixteen-way virtual symmetric multiprocessing, or Virtual SMP) on a host system that has at least 2 logical processors.
    Note: Workstation Player considers multiprocessor hosts that have 2 or more physical CPUs, single-processor hosts that have a multicore CPU, and single-processor hosts that have hyperthreading enabled, to have two logical processors.
