I believe you need more than just VT-x. I have a T7700 that the link Gary pointed to (http://ark.intel.com/VTList.aspx) says has VT-x. However that processor doesn't work for OI with KVM, at least not when it's in a Thinkpad T61p. It would sorta try to work, but any guest OS other than OI wouldn't boot the installer.
I believe you need VT-d and something else that escapes my memory right now, something to do with memory I think. I'll try to find it in my archives. If I do I'll follow up with that as well.

I assumed the quad core Q8200 I purchased a couple years back would have VT-x support (quad core Intel CPU, c.2009 right?), but incredibly it doesn't. One of the reasons I buy AMD now (okay, no AMD support for KVM on OpenIndiana yet), these sort marketing tricks are a complete pain in the butt.
