    Yeah, I get the feeling that utility is no longer useful.

    I tried it out long ago, and it was useless.

    Latest Intel Chipset Device Software

    WHQL version: 10.1.1.42
    Release Date: January 17th 2016

    Known Issues:
    • None.

    Would anyone consider that having all devices installed dated 1970/01/01 an issue when using 10.1.1.42?

    I have never run Intel SetupChipset, and there are no question marks and exclamation marks in my Device Manager.
    The Setup Chipset is only to get devices recognised properly under Windows, nothing else, these are only inf files and contain no actual drivers aka sys files.

    Does this new driver (10.1.1.42) support older Intel chipsets, like the Intel X58 (Socket LGA 1366)?
    I have an older computer with this chipset in it, and it's still running 10.0.27 (from 2015).

    Reason why i am asking, is that if i google 10.0.27, the top result takes me to this newer (10.1.1.42) driver.
    You need to stick to some older revisions of the chipset inf files 9.x...

    If you want to install these new info files for the older unsupported hardware you should visit Other Drivers (= INF files)

    However you wont gain anything by doing this since none of the official or non official inf files are not actually drivers... See Learn about IntelĀ® Chipset Software Installation Utility

    If you install OS, run the most up-to-date- chipset installer compatible with your device and leave it no need for further upgrades. Done and done.

    I've been installing this for years going back to Windows 7, so you're saying I've been wasting my time? Is there any chipset software I should install or just leave it be? As you can see from my hardware specs, I have a Skylake system.

    Yesterday I clean installed 1703 and just left it be, and everything is fine now.

    Yea I'm beginning to think that way myself. There are some drivers you should install such as graphics drivers because they tend to be basic ones from Windows Update.

    Yesterday, at my end, Intel HD Graphics, among other things, was downloaded and installed automatically ten minutes after I connected Windows to the Internet. I just left it be.

    The inf files are not drivers, read this Learn about IntelĀ® Chipset Software Installation Utility its official Intel explanation.

    The Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (also known as Intel® Chipset Device Software) is often called the chipset driver or chipset drivers, a common misconception.
    Its not a waste of time to get the hardware recognised and identified properly under the OS after a clean install, but there are zero performance gains from a lower version to any higher version because its just identifying the components correctly.
