Intel me 8 1 updating toolv1 00 01
Such functionality extends, but it's not limited, to Platform Clocks Control (ICC), Thermal Monitoring, Fan Control, Power Management, Overclocking, Silicon Workaround (resolves silicon bugs which would have otherwise required a new cpu stepping), Identity Protection Technology, Boot Guard, Rapid Start Technology, Smart Connect Technology, Sensor Hub Controller (ISHC), Active Management Technology (AMT), Small Business Advantage (SBA), Wireless Display, Play Ready, Protected Video/Audio Path etc.For certain advanced/corporate features (AMT, SBA etc) the ME uses an out-of-band (OOB) network interface to perform functions even when the system is powered down, the OS and/or hard drivers are non-functional etc.They are created and used only by Intel's FWUpdate tool.Thus, they can neither be opened nor configured by Intel's Flash Image Tool.So there are a total of three families of CSE-based firmware: CSME (CSE ME), CSTXE (CSE TXE) and CSSPS (CSE SPS).This is a collection of everything Intel (CS)ME related. Thus, they can be extremely helpful to those who have major problems with their systems for which their manufacturer refuses to assist due to indifference and/or system age. They are compatible with both Consumer/1.5MB and Corporate/5MB systems.It operates independently from the main CPU, BIOS & OS but can interact with them if needed.
This can perform various tasks while the system is booting, running or sleeping.
Since the software and system services are not really needed for Consumer/1.5MB systems, users of such systems should install the Drivers only (section A1).
