I think what you are asking can me answered by details of Intel's Core i7 specifics in detail and how it pertains to running software. SharePoint 2013 is not different from any other website or program on your computer from the processor's point of view. Intel's vPro Technology will not be specific to SharePoint 2013 performance, but overall software and program performance and security. Click here to learn more about Intel's vPro Technology. Here is a good video explaining Intel's vPro Technology.

In short it provides a list of features:

  • Identity Protection - Secures SharePoint more soundly to prevent others from logging on as you.
  • Data Protection - Saved passwords won't be an issue with remotely disabling stolen computers.
  • Threat Management - Increased virus and malware protection
  • Hardware-Assisted Virtualization - Keep everyone on the same OS version and application versions (Windows or Office or IE)
  • Secure Computing in the Cloud - Increased security with online transactions and commitments.
  • Remote Repair - Remotely repair machines without touching the OS
