    Question on driver compatibility

    RQ

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to install the official drivers that support my specific Intel CPU Chipset and I see my chipset listed for this driver:

      https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24661/Linux-Processor-Microcode-Data-File?product=64580

       

      But I see a reference at the top of that driver page that says: A newer version of this software is available. Click here to get the latest version of this software.

       

      And when I click on the link for the newer driver, I no longer see my chipset under the list of Valid Products to download. My question is would it be safe to install the newer version of this software even if I don't see my chipset CPU under the list of compatible hardware?

       

      Thanks in advance!

          Hello RQ,
           
          Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
           
          In this case, for you to install the proper driver for you system we suggest you to get the chipset driver from your computer manufacturer website.
           
          Note: The driver or software for your Intel® component might have been changed or replaced by the computer manufacturer. Intel sells products to various OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers), who then integrate them, with other system components (power supplies, disk drives, add in cards, software, etc). These chipset may be customized to the OEM’s specifications.
           
          You should be able to get the proper driver for your computer here:
