    Has anyone tried it?

    Im getting the following:

    sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features
    machdep.cpu.features: FPU VME DE PSE TSC MSR PAE MCE CX8 APIC SEP MTRR PGE MCA CMOV PAT PSE36 CLFSH DS ACPI MMX FXSR SSE SSE2 SS HTT TM SSE3 PCLMULQDQ MON DSCPL VMX SMX EST TM2 SSSE3 CX16 TPR PDCM SSE4.1 SSE4.2 POPCNT AES

    Sure, its a new Xeon so that should of course work.

    But I can't get ESXi working in 64-bit mode using vmware Fusion :(

    Anyone else tried?

    Works on my 2010 6-core Mac Pro.. What Mac Pro do you have? The 2008 Mac Pro's firmware was crippled to not allow support for vt-x, but there is a workaround for it.
