Hi all,

On the product page of the g750jx the "most recent" Chipset Version is V9.4.0.1022.
From the download section at asus there are newer chipset updates:

1) Which of them is the right one for the G750jx?
2) Where can i check my current Chipset Version?

Thanks in advance

Max

I would install the latest INF from the download page specific to your laptop (from the page you linked to). You can find the installed INF version number by opening the *.txt file in this path, and located at the top of the file...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\InfInst\readme.txt

It should look like something similar...

* Product: Intel(R) Chipset Device Software
* Release: Production Version
* Version: 9.4.0.1027
* Target PCH/Chipset: Xeon(R) processor E3-1200 v3,Intel(R) 4th Gen Core processor
* Intel(R) 8 Series,C220 Series
* Date: August 21 2013

Thanks! Seems like i already have installed the latest version (Version V9.4.0.1027).

Version V9.4.0.1026 : 2014.03.26
Version V9.4.0.1027 : 2014.03.14
Version V9.4.0.1027 : 2013.10.28

As you notice the versioning is also a bit off ;). Would you in this case install the latest or the highest version?

Thanks

Magnetone, it looks like Asus double posted the .1027 version, they are both the same size, and if you want to check for sure, download both and do a checksum/compare for content /size - they are likely both the exact same file :)

Hi,

but Version V9.4.0.1026 is newer than Version V9.4.0.1027. That's what irritates me. Could be a versioning failure or dating failure or both ;).
So you'd install the highest version (V9.4.0.1027) or the newest version (V9.4.0.1026) ?

Thanks

Thanks for mentioning this OP.. I myself was wondering too, after-all on my JX since beginning of the year, these are the updates available to the machine. Specifically mine.



List below.

Which ones should I update? Are some of them specifically installed with a custom code like the GPU was supposedly? Like, could possibly one of these drivers be keeping my CPU's graphical half disabled?

Max, think of it this way. The version number is the tracking number of the vendor release, call it the publication date.

The insert date is the date the file was inserted into the download site list by the distributor.

Asus, the distributor has 2 .1027 insert dates, widely apart, it is the same file inserted 2x accidentally in to the download list, and the .1026 insert date should have been before the first .1027 insert date, because the .1027 publication date is actually after the .1026 publication date.

You always go by the version number, or publication date, not the distributors insert date - which is after the publication date - and out of the control of the publisher.

That is why there are version numbers, to tell you what was published last, the newest :)

The drivers for the chipset seem to be manufactured mostly in 2012..

Version 9.4.0.1011 and 9.4.0.1008

The latest stuff were made in 2013 and onward.. 9.4.0 1020+

hi,

thank you again hmscott for a fabulous explanation. I am not a computer savvy person but am willing to try to understand what needs to be understood ;).
