Title says it all. But to be more specific, this is between i5-4460 and i5-6400. a.k.a. Haswell and Skylake.
(I won't even try to explain in Japanese, as I'm terrible in it.)
Point is that Trusted Execution is protecting your software execution against malicious attacks who change the code. It is mostly beneficial for companies with sensitive information to protect their system against such attacks. Having them on home computers is not necessary as individuals are hardly targets for such information theft.
It's essentially baremetal-level protection, which has its own unique benefits over software-level protections such as MalwareBytes and Kaspersky. The protection lies on data stored on the chip itself, rather than in the HDD. Circumvents the OS, in case of malicious stuff like ransomware.
Thanks. Sounds like I could use it.
Decided to go with i5-6500 for my future system, but would still like to know the importance of Intel's trusted execution tech.
