Windows 8 + hardware Virtualization on or off

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
If I'm not using any virtual machines is there an advantage to disabling or enabling this in BIOS? They show it on Task Manager now, was wondering if they use it for program backwards compatibility, etc.

Tried doing a search but all the results seem to skew into running VMs.

Thanks.

I don't think it really matters unless you are using virtualization. On that note, it couldn't hurt to turn it off if you plan on overclocking.

Thanks, I turned in on when I was running the pre release version of Win8, there was some sort of crash bug on some setups. I'm going to leave it off and see what happens.
