    I am using the Intel Core i7-6700 CPU for SGX development. The CPU supports SGX1 instructions.

    Will SGX2 be available for this CPU in the future? Will every CPU that supports SGX1, eventually also support SGX2?

    At the moment, querying CPUID with EAX=12H indicates that opcodes of SGX2 instructions are not supported. 

    The SGX functionality also depends on the BIOS configuration - we deployed the most recent BIOS update and also asked HP for a BIOS Update that enables SGX2.

    I am also interested if anyone in this forum already got his hands on a CPU that supports SGX2.

    Thank you and have a great day!
