Intel, the largest manufacturer of x86 processors in the world, employed about 1,200 employees in Russia, had quite a developed infrastructure there and treated the local market seriously. Most of the computers sold in the country used Intel processors, so the regional blocking of downloading drivers from the manufacturer’s website was a considerable obstacle for some users. However, it was not an insurmountable problem, even if the target address of the official website was and still is blocked. Russians could use VPNs, after all. Now updates can reportedly be accessed without hiding your IP address, thanks to the widely available Intel Driver & Support Assistant tool.
