How can I find out if my system (laptop, or notebook, or ultrabook) can support Intel WiDi?

For a system to support Intel WiDi 3.5 (or later), it should have most if not all Intel chipsets (Processor, Graphic Card, and Wireless LAN). Here are some tips on the types of PC system that can support Intel WiDi.

  • If your system is an Ultrabook (4th Gen Intel Core processor), it supports Intel WiDi and is most likely to have Intel WiDi 4.x preinstalled.
  • If your system is an Ultrabook (3rd Gen Intel Core processor or older), it is likely to have the required components for Intel WiDi support. Update your drivers and download the Intel WiDi software here.
  • If your Windows 7 or Windows 8 laptop or notebook is not an Ultrabook, it may support Intel WiDi if it meets the following Processors, Graphics, and Wireless chipset requirements:
