x550-t1/2 Windows Server 2012 R2 driver

I was looking at picking up a few x550-T2 Ethernet adapters. Driver support for Windows Server 2012 R2 is confirmed on these pages:

http://ark.intel.com/products/93524/Intel-Ethernet-Controller-X550-AT Intel® Ethernet Controller X550-AT Product Specifications

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ethernet-products/converged-network-adapters/ethernet-x550-b... Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X550 Product Brief

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products/000005768.html Intel® Ethernet Adapters Supported in Windows Server 2012 R2*

However, when trying to download the driver from here, I can't find it:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/88209/Intel-Ethernet-Converged-Network-Adapter-X550-T2 Downloads for Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X550-T2

Where is the 2012 driver?

I'd also like to confirm that the x550-t2 is using the x550-at2 controller as listed below and not the x550-bt2. The bt2 has physical support for 8 pcie lanes versus only 4 pcie lanes in the at2 which is an issue if one doesn't have pcie 3.0 slots. I just want to know the limitations before purchasing.

Thanks. The 2008 and 2012 drivers are also missing per the above documents. I'm thinking 2012 is the same as 2012 R2. My intended use is with 2012 R2 hence my initial question.
