XPS 9560 - TSX NI not present in i5 7300HQ

Hi

While checking through CPU-Z and hwinfo, it says that the processor does not have TSX.

I need this feature for performance reasons as RPCS3( A PS3 emulator) has implemented TSX to improve its performance.

If you check the intel ark site it says this processor supports TSX.NI

Site:ark.intel.com/.../Intel-Core-i5-7300HQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_50-GHz

So my question is, Has Dell disabled this feature?

My BIOS firmware is the latest 1.3.4 and I am not sure if it was disabled by this new firmware. i cannot confirm this because I havent checked this in the older firmware.

Thanks

You may want to check with Intel - it's been promising to get this technology working but has disabled it after the fact in Haswell, Broadwell and at least some Skylake CPUs.
