tool to detect intel amt compatible processors

Looking at implementing Intel ATM, however we need to confirm via SCCM config Manager 1511 how many devices have Intel ATM compatible processors.

Is there a tool/addon we can leverage to deploy and discover Intel ATM compatible processors?

Running AMT requires both a vPro-capable processor and a vPro-capable chipset. Missing either will disable support for vPro. Bottom line, you need to determine whether support for vPro is present. I see some articles about this on the web; best seems to be here: https://itpeernetwork.intel.com/identifying-vpro-clients-and-their-amt-status-in-sccm/#gs.v93evo.

Hope this helps,

A vPro-capable system is achieved by combining a vPro-capable processor with a vPro-capable chipset-based motherboard. In the 4th generation, the vPro-capable chipset was the Q87.

Both the i7-4790 and i5-4690 are vPro-capable (see comparison: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=80810,80806), so downgrading from the i7 to the i5 will still garner a vPro-capable system.

Hope this helps,
