Software support for your processor is included in your motherboard's BIOS. Contact your motherboard vendor for your board's latest BIOS.

All BIOS update files for Intel® Desktop Boards are available at the Download Center.

Video drivers
Intel introduced processor graphics in 2009. The Intel® Driver Update Utility for Graphics helps you identify and install the graphics driver applicable to your system. For more information about Intel® Processors with built-in graphics capability, see the frequently asked questions on Intel® HD Graphics.

Intel® Driver Update Utility
The Intel® Driver Update Utility keeps your system up-to-date. It detects which driver updates are relevant to your computer and then helps you install them quickly and easily.

Why can't I find BIOS updates?
Any BIOS updates released specifically for your processor are included in motherboard BIOS updates. For compatibility issues, check if your motherboard supports your processor and if a specific revision of BIOS is needed for processor support. Please refer to your system or motherboard manufacturer's website to find updates for your specific board.

Audio drivers
Audio drivers are specific to your motherboard, not your processor. To find the correct drivers for your system, see your system or motherboard manufacturer's website.

Chipset software
Software designed for your motherboard's chipset is available on the Intel® Chipset support site.

Chipset.inf only needs to be run once after installing your operating system and before installing your drivers. You do not need to update this file because it is not a driver.
