  • For a listing of the latest firmware on all products, please see the Firmware listing page.

For the Intel® SSD 540s Series, Intel® SSD Pro 5400s Series, Intel® SSD E 5400s Series and the Intel® SSD DC S3100 Series products, updating from the original production Firmware is only available through the Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool.
