On a VMware ESXi 5.x box with a virtual machine version 8, and physical E5-2689 CPU's I see the following:

On a Windows 2003 32-bit host, Device Manager shows that it is x86 family 6 model 45. On a Windows 2008 R2 64-bit host, Device Manager shows that it is Intel64 family 6 model 45.


Windows does know the processor version as well, though that's just meta information I believe and may not be reliable. There are of course several other popular flavors of virtualization that I am not familiar with.

That's a good point.... The processor should be specified in the VM profile and if I recall correctly it is typically defaulted to the processor of the VM host. I should look closer at this -- but would like some feedback.

Thanks,
