AMD-V or AMD Virtualization is actually a set of hardware extensions for your processor. AMD or Advanced Micro Dynamics is designed to do repetitive tasks which are usually done by software. Aside from that, it could improve the resource that you use and its virtual machine performance as well.
Back in the days virtualization often relied on software emulation however, this has made the process slow and inefficient which results to unacceptable VM performance on the servers. Moreover, aside from that processors were lacking internal microcode which is assigned to handle intensive virtualization tasks in hardware. Hence, developers tried to address these issues through and by enabling AMD virtualization on processors.
How to Enable Virtualization AMD-V on Ryzen Processors
In this article, we shall provide you a guide on how to enable virtualization AMD- V on one of the most popular processor brands – Ryzen. In doing this task, though it seems complicated, it is not really that complicated and difficult to do.
All Ryzen processors seem to have AMD-V which ensures to provide processing power for your virtual machine. However, most, if not all, PCs have virtualization setting disabled in the BIOS. Hence, if you would wish to change that, here is a quick guide:
- Restart your computer
- Press the hot key for you to be able to your BIOS
- On your BIOS search function, enter SVM
- Select SVM mode
- Select enabled
Just follow all the steps provided above and you are good to go.
