OEM vs generic drivers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Where do you download your laptop's drivers, from the OEM (Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc.) or the generic ones (NVIDIA, AMD, Intel)? Specifically audio, chipset, graphics, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, and Intel stuff such as Management Engine and Rapid Storage Technology,

nvidia and AMD don't have generic drivers, they offer the most up to date graphics drivers so they're always the best.

 

as for network and stuff, yeah that all comes from the laptop manufacturer.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I was pertaining to OEM graphics drivers like the one's on Dell's website vs the generic ones from the component manufacturer's website. But I get your point. Thanks.
