Intel® Optane™ Memory SupportednnIntel® Optane™ memory is a revolutionary new class of non-volatile memory that sits in between system memory and storage to accelerate system performance and responsiveness. When combined with the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver, it seamlessly manages multiple tiers of storage while presenting one virtual drive to the OS, ensuring that data frequently used resides on the fastest tier of storage. Intel® Optane™ memory requires specific hardware and software configuration.

Intel VT-d can help end users improve security and reliability of the systems and also improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environments.nnIntel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)nnIntel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. It offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.nnTPMnnTrusted Platform Module (TPM) is a component on the desktop board that is specifically designed to enhance platform security above-and-beyond the capabilities of today’s software by providing a protected space for key operations and other security critical tasks. Using both hardware and software, the TPM protects encryption and signature keys at their most vulnerable stages – operations when the keys are being used unencrypted in plain-text form.nnTPM VersionnnTPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a component that provides hardware level security upon system boot-up via stored security keys, passwords, encryption and hash functions.
