Intel to begin shipping Skylake CPUs with SGX enabled
Welp, I guess those early adopters like me either got shafted or saved with not having SGX extensions enabled.
Intel's Software Guard Extensions (SGX) is a CPU instruction set that allows applications to set aside private memory regions for code and data. SGX was first introduced with the Haswell CPU architecture, but the instructions weren't enabled for Skylake CPUs that sold at launch. Future batches of chips will have SGX enabled, though. Intel has posted a Product Change Notification to notify partners that updated Skylake CPUs with SGX will be available later this month.
