While I don't know the specific CPU series being used in the tablet, hopefully some of Intel's models will support AES-NI for faster and more power efficient encryption/decryption.

Having this feature available on the CPU would make either partial encryption or full disk encryption (for example of the SD card) much more performant and power efficient.

According to Intel, the Atom 3700 Series will be used.

Intel states in its 36xx/37xx Datasheet that the CPU supports AES-NI.

So unless some changes are made still, it should support it.

Not all support AES-NI only a few and only one of the 1.8GHz ARKs does, if they use that they could also use a 2.4GHz ARK...,80274,80268,80269,80275,80270

Well, I also saw the comparison table. But according to the detailed datasheet, all should support it. Look at the datasheet:

  • p. 31, SKU information, Note 1: for Z3735F it refers to section 1.2.2

  • p. 26, Type 3 SoC, nothing written about AES-NI, but also not in the section for Type4 SoC. refer to Chapter 3, "processor core" for more details.

  • p. 80, Chapter Processor Core, 3.1: features, 8th bullet point: "supports AES-NI"

So I hope that datasheet is more exact than the tables on the webpage... :-)
