Intel® processors are at the heart of many mineral-dependent products. We believe we can make a difference, together with our partners, by working to eliminate conflict minerals that fund violence from our supply chain. The Intel® Core™ M processor is the latest conflict-free2 Intel processor.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires an Intel® HT Technology enabled system, check with your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. Intel® HT Technology is available on select Intel® processors.

"Conflict free" means "DRC conflict free", which is defined by SEC rules to mean products that do not contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries. We also use the term "conflict-free" in a broader sense to refer to suppliers, supply chains, smelters and refiners whose sources of conflict minerals do not finance conflict in the DRC or adjoining countries.
