Hello hijasonkidd,

 

 

Thanks for joining the community.

 

 

First of all let me clarify some terms.

 

 

vPro is pretty much and umbrella term to englobe some features on Intel processors, network interphase adapters, chipset and such. You can read a bit more in the following URL: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/core-vpro-processor-fami... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/core-vpro-processor-fami...

 

 

About the Intel Management Engine go to: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000008927/software/chipset-software.html?wa... https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000008927/software/chipset-software.html?wa...

 

 

As you can see both things are different but are somehow related. For example the Intel Active Management Technology (that is part of the vPro Technology) make use of the ME in order to have remote access of a client computer for management purposes. So, if by any chance you could disable ME you will lose the vPro features.

 

 

Hope this helps

Hi Jose,

Thanks for your feedback !

 

I mean some CPU like i3, i5/I7 tran that are Non Vpro system,

 

Can I say, if we disable ME from VPRO(i5/i7) will be equal to those Non VPRO system?

Hello hijasonkidd,

 

 

If you disable the ME from a vPro system will make it equivalent to a non vPro system. I think this is correct. To me, it will always be a vPro system with its features disabled, but if you have security concerns then definitely disabling the ME will make it a non vPro for all purposes.

 

 

Hope this helps.

Hello hijasonkidd,

 

 

Certainly this is a difficult question from vPro stand point.

 

 

Usually consumer CPUs are the ones found on personal computers for home and office environment. These processor could be Atom, Pentium, Core i3, i5, i7, etc. The top of the line of this processors usually are vPro capable but vPro depends on chipset and network interface so not just a CPU will make a computer vPro capable.

 

 

On the other side corporate CPUs could be server, workstation, compute nodes and other high power processors. These CPUs are not vPro capable since servers have different management methods integrated on the board itself called BMC (board management controller).

 

 

vPro and specifically Active Management Technology (AMT) is important for consumer computers because it allows to do large scale deployments and management like about 1000+ computers without need to be physically present at the site.

 

 

Hope this answer your question.
