    Weird PCI Express port in device manager

    I have an oldish i5-3550 on an Asus P8Z77-V motherboard with Z77 chipset. Looking at my device manager, there are several "7 Series PCI Express Root Ports" which look fine, and then a "Xeon E3 v2/3rd Gen PCI Express Root Port" (where my graphics card is attached), which seems odd as I don't have a Xeon processor.

    Is that normal? I don't recall ever seeing this in the past.

    The Chipset driver is Intel from 16/06/2015. When I try to update it from the properties window, it will go to from 28/10/2015, but still reports with the same name. Also only that "device" updates. Is there a way of updating the whole Chipset inf devices instead of doing it one by one?

    The name comes from the Intel driver installed. It simply means that the same driver is used in motherboards with a Xeon. Just ignore it.
