    Which chipset installation shall I use?


    Hi. Just a quick question about my chipset. On my motherboard's manufacturer's website (GIGABYTE), there is an Intel INF Installation Version 10.1.1.8. However, I on Intel's website, the latest version of the Intel INF Installation Utility is 10.1.1.14.
    Would it be wiser to use the latest version, or is the older one fine-tuned for my motherboard? The same question goes for the Intel MEI (Management Engine Interface) + do I even need the MEI at all?

    Are either of those for the model number of your motherboard? Intel made the CPU and chipset but Gigabyte implemented them and the software to run them. If the computer is otherwise running fine I don't mess with that. Or maybe there is a feature available that wasn't when the motherboard was assembled that you could use? As for the MEI it may depend upon what Win10 will work with.

    I looked on my motherboard's drivers for Windows 10 64-bit and found Intel INF Installation 10.1.1.8 and Intel MEI 11.0.0.1158. And what sort of feature are you talking about?

    Most times the manual for a motherboard or on the maker's Website there will be a description of features available. My comment concerned whether the manufacturer found ways to implement features not available to the publishers of the Operating System at the time and make them available later. Only the User can determine if there's something better they can use.
