Intel® Chipset Identification Utility

The Intel® Chipset Identification Utility helps you identify the Intel® Chipset on your motherboard. This information can be used to see if your system supports software like Intel® Matrix Storage Manager, Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility, or Intel graphics drivers.

Note This utility does not identify your Intel® Processor. To identify the type of Intel Processor you have, such as the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor or Intel® Celeron® Processor, download the Intel® Processor Identification Utility.

This utility gives a general idea of your chipset and directs you to the appropriate support content. It is not designed to be a chipset verification utility and Intel does not guarantee it to be free from defects or errata.

If the information returned by the Intel Chipset Identification Utility is different from what you expected, see your motherboard or system documentation for chipset identification information.

Instructions for use

The utility is a standalone program without an installer package, so it does not create a shortcut on the start menu. The file can be left on your system or deleted when no longer needed.

Follow these steps to run the Intel Chipset Identification Utility:

  1. Download the Intel Chipset Identification Utility. (Please check the supported operating system in the link)
  2. Run the Intel Chipset Identification Utility.
Note Some versions of the Intel Chipset Identification Utility include an Update option. If you select Update, the utility checks the Intel Web site for a newer version of the utility and tries to update your current version with the new one, if detected. No personal information of any type is sent or collected from your system.
