According Intel's website, it states "The purpose of Intel GNA is to offload the CPU during some computations. The primary intended usage (but not limited to) is the Automated Speech Recognition domain." https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/30139/Intel-GNA-Scoring-Accelerator-Driver-for-NUC11TN

GNA means Gaussian and Neural Accelerator.
For example, when a person wants to transcript a TED talk , the person can use Speed recognition software (demo) that uses GNA (HW) or (SW) emulation. During the process, the performance monitor demonstrate that there is a drop in CPU residency with GNA HW. which means lower processor loads (reduce loading on the CPU) and it will also reduce power consumption. I also believe it will also increase performance in DNN (Deep Neural Network) applicaitons using GNA. GNA has it's own processor on the Intel processor to process the DNN data.

I have just finished to built my new setup based on a M13H, bios 0704. I don't understand the aim of the setting "GNA device" in the Bios . Is it useful ? Does it need to be completed by a Windows driver ?
By the way, after several days, I can say that my system is really very stable (Prime 95, several hours of MSFS, Aida burn test,...) but I had to disable HT. Otherwise I had several and almost regular clock.watchdog.timeout BSOD's.
