GbE has been more or less standard on boards since at least 2006. So you'd have to go back pretty far before hitting a motherboard that doesn't have GbE.

would drivers have an impact on Ethernet performance? The on in my motherboard does not have any driver for windows 10 or 8/8.1

Yes and no, but it depends on what driver you're using. Performance also depends on a dozen other factors that could be beyond drivers as well.
