Does ProLiant BL460c G6 Support AES-NI?

Does the ProLiant BL460c G6 support AES-NI?  Processor is E5620.  If yes, was support intruduced with a specific version of the BIOS?  If yes, which version?

 

Thanks very much in advance.

Hi!

 

Do we presumable that AES-NI was not around when the CPU was released - so to get this functionality it needs to be added via a firmware upgrade of BIOS? Is this statement correct? (I don't know much about trucrypt or AES-NI).

 

Here is a link to all the BIOS revisions for the bl460c g6:

AES is not mentioned on the page.
