Detailed Description

The Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool provides the firmware update capabilities for the Intel® Optane™ Memory and Intel® Optane™ Solid State Drives listed in Release Notes.

The tool comes in the form of an ISO image and requires either a completely empty USB drive or a blank CD (with CD burning software and a read/writable CD-ROM drive).

The tool works outside of the operating system on the platform, so there are no OS requirements.

Getting started

  • The firmware update process is done entirely at your own risk. Before attempting to update the firmware, it is your responsibility to back up or make copies of your files. If the Intel SSD firmware update process is interrupted, your SSD may not function properly.
  • For the latest firmware available, check the Firmware Versions for Intel® Solid State Drives and Intel® Optane™ Memory.
  • Limitations, requirements and installation steps are including in the User Guide.
  • If your system is accelerated with Intel® Optane™ memory, you will need to temporarily disable system acceleration to run the Intel SSD Firmware Update Tool.
  • If you purchased your Intel SSD from an OEM, your firmware version may have a different naming. Contact your local OEM representative for latest firmware revisions.
  • If you need any assistance with the firmware update or experience issues, please contact Intel Customer Support.
