            Hello DukeDoon,

            Thank you for patiently waiting. 

            Platforms with Core i7-8559U support SGX version 1.9.100.41172 and newer. However, for full details, you should consult with the motherboard manufacturer as there are BIOS dependencies. 

            I hope this helps.

                Hi David,

                 

                Unfortunately not. I wanted to know whether it supports the SGX2 instruction set. I already knew it supported SGX1.

                 

                Regards,

                Arya

                  Hello DukeDoon,

                  Thank you for your response.

                  As mentioned, this processor specifically supports 1.9.100.41172 and newer but due to BIOS dependencies, it is recommended for you to contact the manufacturer of the motherboard or system for further assistance. Since it does support 1.9 and newer it should include the 2.0, nevertheless, I cannot guarantee you it does, first I will recommend to contact the manufacturer.

                    I find the claim that it supports version 1.9.etc and newer confusing. It seems to make more sense for it to support some version X and older, don't you agree?

                      Hello DukeDoon,

                      Thank you for your response.

                      I reviewed the information and indeed the processor supports 1.9.100.41172 and newer. And as mentioned before, we recommend you to get in contact with the manufacturer of the system for further information about this due to the BIOS dependencies. 

                      Depending on the manufacturer, they can enable or disable or even customize the different technologies used depending on the target market of each manufacturer, due to this reason, the question should be directed to the motherboard/system manufacturer.
