How to Identify Your Intel® Chipset

Use the Intel® Chipset Identification Utility to identify your Intel® Chipset. The Intel® Chipset Identification Utility is a downloadable tool used to determine which Intel Chipset is being used by your system. You will need to right click > Run as Administrator during install.

Note This utility is for 32-bit operating systems only. Use the Intel® Driver Update Utility to determine system requirements if you are running a 64-bit OS.

Intel® Chipset Identification 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.

This utility does not identify Intel® Processors. 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.

Using device manager:
Complete the following steps to identify the chipset using Windows* Device Manager. Open Device Manager using one of the following options:

  1. Windows 8*:
    Open the Side Panel > Control Panel > Device Manager
  2. Windows 7*:
    Click Start > Control Panel > Device Manager
  3. Windows Vista*:
    Click Start > Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager
  4. Windows XP*:
    Click Start > Control Panel > System. Select the Hardware tab and Device Manager.

Expand the System Devices entry and look for the chipset name similar to the following: "Intel 955X Memory Controller Hub - 2774". In this example, the chipset is an Intel® 955X Express Chipset.

Using DxDiag:

  1. Start > Run > dxdiag
  2. Look under the 'Display' tab for 'Chip Type'
