Intel may make changes to specifications and product descriptions at any time, without notice. Designers must not rely on the absence or characteristics of any features or instructions
marked "reserved" or "undefined". Intel reserves these for future definition and shall have no responsibility whatsoever for conflicts or incompatibilities arising from future changes to
them. The information here is subject to change without notice. Do not finalize a design with this information.

roadmaps.
Contact your local Intel sales office or your distributor to obtain the latest specifications and before placing your product order.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are
measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other
information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmark data or Web sites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the
referenced Web sites or others where similar performance benchmark data are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmark data are accurate and reflect performance of
systems available for purchase.
Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families: Go to: Learn
About Intel® Processor Numbers
The products described in this document may contain design defects or errors known as errata which may cause the product to deviate from published specifications. Current
characterized errata are available on request.
Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, and virtual machine monitor (VMM). Functionality, performance or other benefits will
vary depending on hardware and software configurations. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Consult your PC manufacturer. For more information,
visit http://www.intel.com/go/virtualization
64-bit computing on Intel architecture Requires a system with a 64-bit enabled processor, chipset, BIOS and software. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and
software you use. Consult your PC manufacturer for more information. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/info/em64t
