limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard
New Instructions (Intel® AES–NI)12
A faster, more secure AES engine for a variety of encryption apps, including whole disk encryption, file
storage encryption, conditional access of HD content, internet security, and VoIP. Consumers benefit from
protected internet and email content, plus faster, more responsive disk encryption.
Intel® Power Optimizer and Processor
C-States
Intel® Power Optimizer increases periods of silicon sleep state across the platform ingredients, including the
CPU, chipset, and third-party system components, reducing power and increasing battery life for Ultra and
SV platforms. New Processor C-states (C8-C10) on Ultra platforms provide dramatically low idle power.
Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator
(FIVR)
The voltage regulator is now integrated into 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors, improving battery life
and providing design-cost and space savings for OEMs. This integration also allows finer power control for
efficiency.
Configurable TDP
With Configurable TDP, the processor is now capable of modulating the maximum sustained power
vs. performance. Configurable TDP thus provides design and performance flexibility to control system
performance based on the cooling capability and usage scenarios. For example, a detachable Ultrabook™
may need more performance when used in a full clamshell mode (vs. tablet mode), or when balanced
performance is needed in a quiet conference room setting.
On-Package Cache Memory

to be reached (compared to prior generations of Intel Core processor products).
Intel® BIOS Guard (Codename Platform
Flash Armoring Technology [PFAT])
Platform Flash Armoring Technology is an augmentation of existing chipset-based BIOS flash protection
capabilities targeted to address the increasing malware threat to BIOS flash storage. It protects the BIOS
flash from modification without platform manufacturer authorization, helps defend the platform against
low-level DOS (denial of service) attacks, and restores BIOS to a known good state after an attack.
Intel® Boot Guard
Hardware-based boot integrity protection that prevents unauthorized software and malware takeover
of boot blocks critical to a system’s function, thus providing added level of platform security based on
hardware. Configurable boot types include:
Measured Boot—Measures the initial boot block into the platform storage device such as trusted platform
module (TPM) or Intel® Platform Trust Technology (PTT).
Verified Boot—Cryptographically verifies the platform initial boot block using the boot policy key.
Intel® OS Guard (Formerly Supervisor
Mode Execution Protections [SMEP])
An enhanced hardware-based security feature that protects the OS (operating system) kernel. OS Guard
protects areas of memory marked as user mode pages and prevents attack code, which is in a user mode
page or a code page, to take over the OS kernel. OS Guard is not application-specific and protects the kernel
from any application.
Intel® Platform Trust Technology
A trusted element of the platform execution that provides enhanced security by verifying the boot portion of
the boot sequence.
VMCS shadowing
VMCS shadowing allows a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) running in a guest (nested virtualization) to
access a shadow VMCS memory area using the normal VMRead/VMWrite instructions. This new technology
reduces overhead for a more natural and responsive user experience. It also allows users to take control of
their personal and professional data and apps while being protected by game-changing security.
Intel® Active Management Technology
(Intel® AMT)2
Using built-in platform capabilities and popular third-party management and security applications, Intel
AMT allows IT to better discover, heal, and protect networked computing assets.
