Intel is Removing End of Life Drivers and BIOS Downloads

Recommended Posts

If you are user of old Intel hardware, be sure to create a backup of your drivers or BIOS updates as Intel will no longer make them available for download once they reach end of life.

Sad day really, other companies such as Dell don't remove them. Perhaps they don't want people to use the old cheap ones, just use the new expensive ones.

Might backfire and be an incentive for people to upgrade to AMD Ryzen.;)

Or drive people to 'dodgy' sites for old intel driver downloads. I'm sure there are lots of folk who cannot afford new machines :(

I wonder if it's anything to do with the Meltdown (and Spectre) vulnerabilities in Intel chips?

I wondered that at first nukecad but after reading this thread I don't. Even today on there (4 pages) folk are uploading and downloading like mad before they all go. What a waste.
