hell Low.

I'm having a chance to dump my E8400 for a decent price,
so i need someone with one of those Intel CPUs:
or any of those ending with K (unlocked multiplier)
to check if CPU supports segmentation in long mode.
Basically i need to know if it supports 64bit virtualbox guest.
This can be checked by looking for VMX tag,
or by running from vmware (win and lin binaries there).
Intel's site is not crystal clear about that.
Thank You.
