Find Intel® Processor Software and Drivers

Software support for your processor would be included in your motherboard's BIOS.
Contact your motherboard vendor for your boards latest BIOS.

Video drivers
Intel introduced processor graphics in 2009. The Intel® Driver Update Utility for Graphics will help you identify and install the graphics driver if applicable to your system.

Intel® Driver Update Utility - Automatically identify and find drivers
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.

BIOS updates – why can’t I find them?
Any BIOS updates released specifically for your processor would be included in BIOS updates for your motherboard. For compatibility issues, check to see 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
These type of drivers are specific to your motherboard, and not your processor. So to find the correct drivers for your system, you will need to see your system or motherboard manufacturer's website.

Chipset software
Software designed for your motherboard’s chipset would be found on the Intel chipset support site. It is not available for download from the Intel® Processor support site. Chipset.inf needs to be run only once after installing your operating system and before installing your drivers. You do not need to update this file, it is not a driver.
