I've been a long time Intel (Xeon) user, but I'm considering switching to AMD (Ryzen) for my next purchase, due to lower prices, lower power consumption and excellent performance.

I'm now looking at the instruction set, or at least I'm trying to. Intel processors have features like TXT, VT-x, SGX, ... where can I find a similar list of features for AMD processors?

Somehow I'm struggling to find this list online, and all I can find (on wikichip.org for example) is just a list of the "classic" features like SSE and MMX. Where can I find a list that shows the more "advanced" features for security and virtualization? Are they basically just AMD-V, AMD-VI and NX or is there more?
