Is there any BIOS for enabling AES-NI for i5-2410M

[ Edited ]

I'd like to enable AES-NI in my i5-2410M  X220. I found out that for unlocking AES-NI I need updated BIOS with new CPU microcode revision. Is there any BIOS for  X220 which includes new microcode, which supports AES-NI commans for  i5-2410M?

AES-NI has been enabled since the T410 series.  

 

Run the tool from that other thread and see if it's there.

The i5-2410M doesn't have AES-NI.

Ok, I thought just the i3 didn't have it.

You're wrong.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors

From wiki: Core i5-2410M, i5-2415M can support AES-NI with laptop OEM-supplied BIOS processor configuration update.

I ask is there AES-NI update for Core i5-2410M X220?

Re: Is there any BIOS for enabling AES-NI for i5-2410M

This gets strange from here...

At the bottom of the Intel ark document, it states:

"Some products can support AES New Instructions with a Processor Configuration update, in particular, i7-2630QM/i7-2635QM, i7-2670QM/i7-2675QM, i5-2430M/i5-2435M, i5-2410M/i5-2415M. Please contact OEM for the BIOS that includes the latest Processor configuration update."

Which is consistent with the Wikipedia article...

Ok, if the intel itself doesn't know if the support is present or not the confusion is clearly explainable.

Here Anandtech tanks about the MBP and mention that processor as not rsupported.

http://www.anandtech.com/show/4205/the-macbook-pro-review-13-and-15-inch-2011-brings-sandy-bridge/3

Here an Ubuntu user sayd the opposite.

Just guessing: but probably the product page I linked is wrong and Anand was fooled like me.

At this point is hard to have a definitive answer.

To All,

My friend has one X220 with 2410M which supports AES-NI, just like @jzivan showed. I guess what is happening here is some of them supports but some doesn't.
