Hello.

Downloaded from Intel a BIOS update archive and inside one of the files, the latest firmware file, it's present 2 times. Once with a normal name and second with the name suffixed by pong.

Both files have a txt file with a version. The pong one has a version higher by one digit as depicted below.

Pong file : S5500.86B.01.00.0069.032620181414

Non-pong file : S5500.86B.01.00.0069.032620181413

No explanation anywhere for this.

Can someone explain this?

Thank you !

Hello NAlex3,


Thank you for joining the community


Due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help. You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your request. Thank you for understanding.
