Desktop motherboards in market that support SGX BIOS ?

Jump to solution


Hi experts,

I check https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware, and make sure my CPU support SGX.
But, in "Desktop Mainboards", there is no known model.
I am using ASUS H170M-Plus with latest BIOS 1805 (date:2016/07/08),
but not having any SGX related option in BIOS.

I am wondering which motherboards in market are confirmed having SGX support ?

Thanks,
Pike

The best advice I can give: don’t buy a system unless you can review its technical specs and see either: 

  • A 6000-series model number (i3-6xxx, i5-6xxx, or i7-6xxx), or The phrase “Intel® 6th generation CoreTM processor”
  • All 6th generation Intel processors support SGX. Before you purchase kindly refer to Intel ARK website(http://ark.intel.com/) for the list of processors that supports SGX and also make sure to check with OEM to provide drivers and firmware to support SGX

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Selvaraj,
Thanks for reply.
I use i5-6400, and I am sure it having SGX support.
I am trying to buy desktop motherboard from market instead of OEM platforms,
and I also ask major motherboard makers, ASUS/GIGABYTE/MSI,
but no one have a confirmed answer that which board having SGX support (BIOS control).
So, do you have any idea about retail motherboard having SGX support ? Or I can only use OEM platform ?
Thanks,
Pike

Hi Pike,

Gigabyte has a board that supports SGX but requires BIOS update (see attached for details).

That being said, my recommendation is to use an OEM platform that was verified as SGX ready. You can use Intel’s NUC which is less expensive.
