    memory scrambler

    osy4997

      I read about the memory scrambler in data sheet of 4th, 5th and 6th generation Intel CPU.

       

      I understood that finally memory scrambler convert data and store it in DRAM in order to minimize the impact of excessive di/dt.

       

      And also, there are papers which mention about that the memory scrambler can mitigate the 'cold boot attack'.

       

      Therefore,

       

      1. Is it correct to what I understand?

       

      2. How can I know whether memory scrambler' is set up in my machine?

       

      Thanks
