Useful Intel links…

Two links from Intel are particularly useful for desktop/laptop users. First, this tool will find out if the Intel drivers you’re using are up-to-date:

http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect

since many if not most desktops/laptops include some Intel based chipset (even if it isn’t the main CPU), then this is a pretty useful site to use.

If you’re interested to know what Intel chipsets your system uses without checking for updates, this downloadable tool is useful:

http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/inf/sb/cs-009266.htm

When run it lets you know what at a minimum your mainboard chipset is (assuming it’s Intel).

Of course AMD users mileage will undoubtedly vary. Note that both of these are Windows only apps (sorry).
