DL380 G5 - Intel® Virtualization Technology Option

I've got a DL380 G5 Bi Xeon 3Ghz on which there is VMWare ESX. I want to know if it is necessary to activate Intel® Virtualization Technology option into the Bios to improve the performances? Thank you

Re: DL380 G5 - Intel® Virtualization Technology Option

Virtualization solutions enhanced by Intel VT will allow a platform to run multiple operating systems and applications in independent partitions. Using virtualization capabilities, one computer system can function as multiple "virtual" systems. With processor and I/O enhancements to Intel's various platforms, Intel Virtualization Technology can improve the performance and robustness of today's software-only virtual machine solutions.

Thanks.

Do you know if there is a "big" difference of performances if this option is enabled?
