    Core i3 7th generation ecc support

    benurb

      Hello,

      I'm wondering about the ECC-RAM support of the 7th generation Core i3 CPUs. Intel ARK currently says, that they in general (e.g. the 7100 and 7300) support ECC-RAM, but cpu comparisons and forum threads from a few months ago say otherwise:

       

      https://www.reddit.com/r/freenas/comments/5oz85b/intel_have_dropped_ecc_support_on_the_new_kaby/

      http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i3-7100-vs-Intel-Core-i3-6100/3891vs3511

       

      My question is whether there is a new revision of the Core i3 CPUs that actually support ECC-RAM and the older revision doesn't or is the confusion based on erroneous information in Intel ARK a few months ago and all i3 7100/7300 support ECC-RAM?

       

      Regards,
      Ben
