8360Y QAT Device ID

Hi Support,

We are testing an 8360Y with a Mobo M50CYP2SB2U. (Board Chipset Intel® C621A Chipset)

  We can see that it supports crypto acceleration and on the Family processor page it supports QAT through 

  • External integrated in the PCH as chipset (where do we find this option?)

Is this an added option for the 8360Y, as above external pch? or is there a device ID to access QAT like in the D processor family?

We do have the OpenSSL/QAT-Engine working with this processor and it gives fairly decent results, to fully exploit QAT do we still have to install a discrete card, we are assuming that additionally provides a 20% gain on hardware offload supporting the 8360Y?

We were lead to believe that the 8360Y had built-in QAT, but that appears to be misleading and it actually only provides crypto acceleration and not integrated QAT features.

The webpages confused us even more with built-in as opposed to options

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/docs/processors/xeon/3rd-gen-xeon-scalable-processo...

Crypto Acceleration and AVX512 but no mention of integrated QAT, but we have QAT Engine working with the 8360Y??????

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/sku/212459/intel-xeon-platinum-8360y-processor-54m-...

we can see that QAT is integrated on the D processors

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/sku/193696/intel-xeon-d1649n-processor-12m-cache-2-...

Integrated Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Yes)
 
If anyone can clear this up for us that would be helpful for us to complete and understand our final bill of material and testing.
