In the Intel® Download Center, you will see three options for finding drivers: Intel® Driver & Support Assistant, Search downloads, and Find by Category.

We recommend that you first try the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant. This tool automatically detects driver updates that are relevant for your computer, and it helps you install them.


Manual process

    2. If only one version displays:
      1. Click the download button or title.
      2. In the next screen, the .exe and .zip versions display. Select .exe. Use the .zip file only if you have installation issues.
