    Intel Z77 chipset support.

    Hello all,

    Just wondering if Windows 8 RP includes full native/out of the box support for the Intel Z77 (Ivy Bridge) chipset?

    I have installed it on my new 3770K rig based on the Asus P8Z77-V PRO motherboard. Everything seems to be working correctly. However, I can't find any Z77 chipset driver installers on the Intel website.

    The chipset driver that I can download from the Asus website only installs when I force it to install by using compatibility mode. Wondering if I should do this or just leave it as it is after a clean install as it seems to be recognised anyway.

    Welcome to Eight Forums OD.

    I would just leave it as it is now.

    Chipset drivers are better to get from the OEM or motherboard sites.
    Asus will have new Win8 drivers anytime from now until the release.

    The only drivers I D/L from Intel are the RST (for all computers) and Graphics drivers for my laptop.
    Most of the rest are from OEM or motherboard site, all graphics cards from manufactures site.

    For any pre-release OS I check if any drivers are needed after the clean install, if none are needed I just go with it.
    These beta releases can be picky about drivers, usually after RTM the drivers are better and the OS handles them better.
