There are the specific requirements for Hyper-V:

As PowerEdgeTech noted above, you can confirm that any specific CPU has VT and DEP support at Intel's Processor Spec site (link at the post above)

ALL of the CPU's you listed have the appropriate feature sets.

Easiest way is to look up the processor at http://ark.intel.com/.
Nearly all - if not all i-series processors support VT, which is required for Hyper-V.

For example, the i7-2500 does support VT:
