This item is not displayed if it is not supported by the installed CPU.
You need a CPU with two home agents. When end users enable COD (Cluster-on-Die), the BIOS configures additional NUMA nodes for each socket, optimizing the performance of NUMA directional high workloads.
For COD enabled systems, isochronous applications need to be disabled and early snooping is not supported.
  EarlySnoop
• Auto
• Enabled
• Disabled
Auto
Early snooping is available in two socket configurations only if both QPI links between CPUs are reserved.
Snooping is initiated for local and remote requests that can reduce latency from different agents.
Since this mode is not supported when COD is enabled, performance is optimized even for workloads that are not completely NUMA-oriented.
