I'm trying to use the SDE to emulate the KNM chip. The release notes for SDE 7.58.0 say that this should be possible with the -knm flag. However, when running
sde -knm -- ./binary_file
I get the following error:
An error was detected processing the command line.
Add "-long-help" to the Intel(R) SDE command line to see the options knobs.
BAD OPTION: -knm
Is this a simple mistake on my part or has the KNM chip not been fully implemented? Thanks very much.

I am using SDE 8.4.0 for Linux. The release note I am referencing is on this webpage: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-development-emulator-release-notes
Specifically, the second note under "2017-01-23 version 7.58.0."
The short chip options are in "..../sde -help" output. Looks like the -knm option is missing from the current release. The sde dev team will look at this when they are back next week. Thanks for the bug report
Thanks for the info, Ady, Mark, and Sergey.
Can we expect a release with KNM support in the near future? Does KNM emulation already exist in the internal SDE versions?
Thanks very much for your help.
