The Intel® Solid-State Drives using the SATA interface do not require a driver. The firmware required for the SSD to operate is pre-programmed in the drive.
However, to use technologies such as NCQ or TRIM, use Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver version 9.6 or later.
For Intel® Solid-State Drives that use the PCI Express* interface, such as the Intel® SSD 750 or Intel® SSD DC P3700, use one of the following drivers:
- For Microsoft Windows* operating systems, use the link for the Intel NVMe* driver for PCIe* (link).
- For Linux* operating systems, use a version that has NVMe driver backported, such as Linux kernel 3.10 and higher.
If you are using your Intel® Solid-State Drive in a notebook, desktop system, or with a third-party motherboard, contact the system manufacturer for more information.
