Docker Desktop for Windows on Intel Core m5 vPro Dell Latitude 7370

Hi I have a Dell Latitude 7370 with an Intel Core m5 vPro CPU, here is the Speccy report:

Intel Core m5
Cores 2
Threads 4
Name Intel Core m5
Code Name Skylake-U/Y
Package Socket 1168 BGA
Technology 14nm
Specification Intel Core m5-6Y57 CPU @ 1.10GHz
Family 6
Extended Family 6
Model E
Extended Model 4E
Stepping 3
Revision D0/K0/K1
Instructions MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, Intel 64, NX, AES, AVX, AVX2, FMA3
Virtualization Not supported
Hyperthreading Supported, Enabled
Stock Core Speed 1100 MHz
Stock Bus Speed 100 MHz

Performance from Docker Desktop for Windows is absolutely atrocious out of the box. I am looking at these specs on this chip and it states that Virtualization is not supported. Does that need to be supported and enabled to expect any kind of decent performance with Docker? How can or should I optimize this older laptop to host docker images? I am sure if I Google it (RTFM) there is a best practices guide. I just need some hand holding for this laptop atm. Thanks,


The m5-6Y57 supports virtualization, you see it here under ‘Advanced Technologies’. Core M is not a high performance family, but are you sure your notebook runs at full speed and not in some power or battery saving mode?
