Cross-Platform Feature Comparison

For an Intel-commissioned study, IOActive compared security-related technologies from both 11th Gen Intel Core vPro mobile processors and AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 series mobile processors. Our comparison was based on a set of objectives bundled into five categories: Below the OS, Platform Update, Trusted Execution, Advanced
Threat Protection, and Crypto Extension.

Based on IOActive research, we conclude that AMD offers no corresponding technologies in the Below the OS, Platform Update, Advanced Threat Protection, or Crypto Extension categories, while Intel offers features in all of these categories. Intel and AMD have equivalent capabilities in the Trusted Execution category.
