Intel SHA Extensions are set of extensions to the x86 instruction set architecture which support hardware acceleration of Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) family. It was introduced in 2013.

There are seven new SSE-based instructions, four supporting SHA-1 and three for SHA-256:

  • SHA1RNDS4, SHA1NEXTE, SHA1MSG1, SHA1MSG2
  • SHA256RNDS2, SHA256MSG1, SHA256MSG2

x86 architecture processors[edit]

The following Intel processors support SHA instruction set:

Several AMD processors support SHA instruction set:

  • AMD Zen (and later) processors.[3]
