Notices & Disclaimers

Performance results are based on testing as of dates shown in configurations and may not reflect all publicly available updates.

No product or component can be absolutely secure.

Your costs and results may vary.

Intel technologies may require enabled hardware, software or service activation.

Intel optimizations, for Intel compilers or other products, may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel products.

Intel may make changes to specifications and product descriptions at any time, without notice.

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. All processors support Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT-x).

Performance varies by use, configuration and other factors.
