AMD processors have additional protection from malicious software known as Enhanced Virus Protection (EVP).
This protection works by setting aside portions of memory as "data only".
The NX bit (no-execute) is a technology used in CPUs to segregate areas of memory for use by either storage of processor instructions or for storage of data.
This feature is increasingly used in conventional von Neumann architecture processors for security reasons.
