How does the on-chip encryption feature set of the i7 compare to the very
latest sparc processors and their on-chip encryption features ?
the latest i5 / i7 with AES-NI can accelerate ... AES.
the SPARC T2/T3 can accelerate:
- AES (ECB, CBC, CTR, CCM, CGM, CFB modes)
- RSA, DSA, DH
- Elliptic Curve (ECDH, ECDSA, including key generation)
- MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512
- Hardware entropy source
not much of a comparison, really.
