Hi everybody.
I need to know what's the difference between 2600 and 2600k?
why 2600k doesn't have vPro/TXT/VT-d/SIPP technology?
What's that mean?

The K has an unlocked multiplier for overclocking and the 3000 series graphics core (otherwise it's the 2000 series).

As the K is intended for overclocking enthusiasts, I should imagine all the virtualisation tech and whatnot has been left off because it won't get used.
