Intel adds support for Skylake and Z100 chipset series

Intel has been writing and releasing its own platform drivers for years and they usually get updated on a regular basis. Of course, we are talking about the so-called Chipset Device software drivers that you install after you set up Windows on your computer.

The latest release of the Intel Chipset Drivers come with rather curious side information, though – the newest version 10.0.27 adds support for three upcoming major releases by Intel and not only – the Intel Z100 series chipsets and most notably the Z170 chipset, the upcoming Intel Skylake processors and, of course, Windows 10.

This is clear proof that the new LGA 1151/Skylake/Windows 10 platform is just around the corner and motherboards for this combo might appear at the upcoming Computex 2015 exhibition in June 2015. The Intel Skylake generation is expected this fall, while Windows 10 will likely be released in late July this year.
