If you buy an AMD CPU equipped computer from DELL, beware that DELL does
NOT support AMD CPU features in its BIOS.
AMD-V is not supported
AMD Cool and Quiet is not supported
AMD CPU controls such as single CPU is not supported.
Very frustrating that they did not update their BIOS for AMD based systems.
