I shouldn't be surprised, but I admit I am always a little taken aback when I'm reminded of how many CPUs are anonymously buried in our systems:

"However, for the PCH, Intel manufactures this core with 22-nm semiconductor technology, making the microcontroller highly energy-efficient. There are three such cores in the new PCH: Management Engine (ME), Integrated Sensors Hub (ISH), and Innovation Engine (IE). The latter two can be enabled or disabled depending on the PCH model and the target platform; the ME core is always enabled."
