I have a system with a Celeron 1007u processor. This is of the Ivy Bridge generation. I want to use the RDRAND instruction that was introduced int the Ivy Bridge generation.
Linux says that the processor does not have RDRAND (i.e./proc/cpuinfo does not contain "rdrand").
According http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/3rd-gen-core-deskt... errata BV54 that might cause this problem.
Is the Celeron 1007u supposed to have RDRAND? How can I tell?I haven't found a specification on the Intel web site that clearly states this.
