Release notes:

Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) is a simple Windows*-based performance tuning software for novice and experienced enthusiasts to overclock, monitor, and stress a system. The software interface exposes a set of robust capabilities common in most enthusiast platforms along with special new features available on new Intel® processors and motherboards.

What's New:

  • New Features
    • Installer includes the complete Microsoft SQL Server CE redistributable. This fixes the issue where conflicting versions caused XTU to hang at launch.
    • All OC mailbox writes are now aggregated per mailbox domain and write command to avoid instabilities that may result in changing voltage modes, targets and ratio values separately.
  • Known Issues
    • XTU exposes graphics controls when there is no tunable device available or if the graphics driver is not installed. Tuning these controls should not result in any change to the system.

Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
