Should I install the Chipset Driver?

helpdesk

#1

I don’t know if I should download the Motherboard Chipset driver that’s available on my Motherboard website?

I own a Threadripper CPU with Nivida GPU. When I want to install the driver I see Radeon logo? I don’t understand is the chipset driver meant for people who have an AMD GPU? or is it ok to install it?

Thanks,

What is your motherboard?
nvm I found it

x399 extreme Gigabyte

I would ignore the radeon logo and proceed

OK, I just installed it, can you please explain to me what the purpose of it?


#4

I can not.

The logo is just because AMD used the same installer they use for radeon stuff.
Makes installing the chipset driver after installing the GPU driver (on AMD-AMD Systems) somewhat hard…
