Early June slew of Intel software updates and releases supports tech shift

Intel’s swag of software and driver updates across the first two weeks of June hosted a half-dozen BIOS upgrades, NUC Pro, Linux Windows 10 and 11 services updates and graphics support.

According to IDC analysis, the chipmaking giant is continuing its transformation towards more advanced opportunities and growth markets.

Safroadu Yeboah-Amankwah, senior vice president and chief strategy officer at Intel, said the company is deemphasising segments such as memory, connected home, and cellular modem technologies.

“We have been methodically executing to reposition Intel into higher-growth opportunities – with foundry, discrete GPUs, AI accelerators and others – and away from low-growth segments,” Yeboah-Amankwah said in a related announcement.

“We are very pleased with the progress of our IDM2.0 strategy and remain on track to regain technical and manufacturing leadership, and to become a major provider of foundry capacity.”

IDC reported that Intel has increased its serviceable addressable market (SAM) by 45% since it began reorganisating its business units, predicting an Intel SAM compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% through 2027, hitting $500 billion (£397bn).

The first 11 days in June saw Intel shore up opportunity for its processors and chipsets by rolling out HotKey services for Win 10 and 11 NUC P14E laptop elements, BIOS updates for Intel Aptio V UEFI firmware cores in Intel NUC 12 compute, an Intel Arc Pro Graphics driver for Windows, the oneMKL benchmarks suite for Windows, Linux and Mac, Intel 741 focused server chipset drivers and more.

The NUC M15 laptop kit as well as the NUC11PHKi7C, NUC11PHKi7CAA, NUC Kit NUC6CAYH and NUC6CAYS options also get BIOS updates for Intel Aptio V UEFI firmware.

Other packages just released come with a signature file for Bare Metal Onboard for FDOand there’s an Intel QuickAssist Technology Driver for Linux – HW Version 1.X.

Intel® QuickAssist Technology (QAT) provides cryptographic and compression acceleration capabilities for datacentre performance and efficiency.

Also out is the Intel NUC Pro Software Suite (NPSS) Version 3 for newer 2023 products. The Intel NUC Pro Software Suite monitors unattended applications and provides redundant screen services for digital signage applications, including for ‘graceful’ terminations and relaunches of unresponsive applications.
