Intel Chipset drives won't update... help!

Recommended Posts


Windows Update serves me an Intel Chipset driver update.


Looking in the Device Manager, I see that the current drivers are from 1968 (so technically 53 years old. Exactly the date Intel was founded... good to know that they already back than new that they would release their 9th gen Core i7 CPU somewhat later :D


Anyhow, the current drivers are not installed on my system.

What can I do to have these installed and be more up date (even given if current drivers are 3-5 years old)?!


My machine has Win 10 Pro 20H2 installed on 64 bit.

Those needn't be updated, they're simply stubs to get rid of the yellow triangle, don't worry about them ;)

Regarding the driver date:




Regarding the driver in this Chipset INF utility (per the Release Notes .pdf)

from this Ten forums thread - explanation about the 1968 date



According to intel ...

“Intel(R) Chipset Device Software uses an unusual date for the devices it is targeting. The date 07/18/1968 is symbolic – Intel was founded that day. The reason this date is used is to lower the rank of Intel(R) Chipset Device Software.This is necessary because it’s a supporting utility that should not overwrite any other drivers. Updating Intel(R) Chipset Device Software is not needed."


like a few others were saying before me - don't worry about it
