    AES NI support - statements vs. facts

    SCtbe

      Hi,

       

      Recently I was surprised after reading KB70359, because my experience shows that encryption on new Core i Intel processors (there with AES NI enhancement) is around 3-4 times faster when encrypting with EEPC 6.0.2 than on older machines.

      For example encrypting 240GB HDD takes approx the same time as encryption of 80GB HDD on older machine.

       

      What is curious

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AES_instruction_set list EEPC as supporting AES NI.

       

      Regards.
