How to find the Intel® SSD firmware version in Linux*
  1. Open a Terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T.

  2. Type the command: sudo fdisk -l (the last letter is a lowercase L). Results look similar to the following.
    sudo fdisk -l

  3. Find the drive you want and record the device name. Example: /dev/sda.

  4. Type the command: sudo hdparm -i <device name>. Example: sudo hdparm -i /dev/sda

    Note If information for an NVMe drive is needed, the drive will be listed as 'nvme0n1' or similar and the hdparm command above will not work (hdparm works with ATA devices only).  Other tools can be used, such as the Intel® Datacenter Tool, to determine the FW version.

    The firmware version displays after the model number:
    sudo hdparm -i <device name>
