Default m5a99x EVO chipset? - 07-27-2013, 01:42 | posts: 5 | Location: Montreal

well basically, i've been trying to find info on the chipset used by my MoBo..

got that from Speccy,

Chipset Vendor AMD
Chipset Model RD9x0
Chipset Revision 02

so i went on Asus, and downloaded the chipset folder for my MoBo (AMD_Chipset_XPVistaWin7_8_VER8973_VER8981).. about 1gb when unzipped.. there's countless folders and .exe files in there... so im lost.

so i have 2 questions:
1. how do i know what chipset driver version i have
2. how do i update it


when trying to run a .exe from the folder it installs catalyst (i dont have ATI video cards on my computer?!) and some other useless programs

well, that's about it.. if you need more info, ask

You have 99X w/ AMD 950 SB, with AMD/JMicron SATA controllers and AsMedia USB.

The latest AMD drivers are here; download and extract package with 7-Zip, then go to device manager/ide/ata controllers and install manually.

AsMedia and USB3 drivers can be found on the same site.

Specs here.

well, the drivers are not from AMD or ASUS.. it's from a 3rd party website, which is not affiliated with any of them.
