In order for us to provide the most accurate response and assistance for this scenario, I will do further research on this matter. For us to be able to do that, even though you are looking to find all the 13th gen processors that support PKS(supervisor), please provide the complete model of your 13th i7 processor so we can further assist you on this subject.

Hi Albert,

 

Thank you for the reply, we bought the 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-13700 processor (16-Core, 24MB Cache, 2.1GHz to 5.1GHz)

 

and the whole set is dell inspiron desktop .

 

After we received the desktop, we use `__cpuid` function in `intrin.h` to query the `ecx` value when `eax == 07H` according to the intel manual `cpuid` chapter.

 

the bit31 is not 1, which means PKS is not support.

 

 

Thank you,

purplewall1206

Hello purplewall1206, I just received an update on this matter.


After reviewing the case we can confirm that the Intel® 13th-generation processors do not support PKS feature. The same applies to other Intel® processor generations as well.
