    Windows 10 is getting a major driver update on Intel, Nvidia, AMD PCs


    To get your computer ready for future Windows 10 and app/game updates, making sure that your hardware drivers remain updated is of the utmost importance

    In Windows 10, you can update drivers via the Windows Update, but users are always recommended to use the driver vendor’s proprietary desktop program that correctly downloads and installs driver updates.

    This week, Intel, AMD and Nvidia are pushing new driver updates to systems running Windows 10 version 1709 or newer. The update comes with important fixes and improvements to make your computer faster by addressing network connectivity issues, system crashes, and more.

    Intel’s December update


    On PCs with Intel network hardware (Bluetooth and Wi-Fi), two new driver updates are now available for Windows 10.

    Despite the rollout of Windows 10’s optional updates, it seems Intel drivers and adapters are still causing issues for users, with Intel again confirming that a bug in their software causes connectivity problems and crashes some PCs.

    Intel has previously fixed problems with wireless drivers last month, but it seems that the gremlins persist.

    Intel is currently rolling out a new Bluetooth driver update to fix issues with multiple devices (mouse, headphone, stylus, etc). According to the changelog, this update also resolves Bluetooth disconnection bug with some devices.

    Another bug has been fixed where the Bluetooth device may show a yellow alert in the Device Manager after resuming the system from sleep mode or hibernation. Intel said that it observed this ‘rare’ issue on some systems where Device Manager may show a yellow bang under the Bluetooth section.

    In addition to Bluetooth driver, a new wireless (Wi-Fi) driver update is also rolling out. As per the changelog, Intel Wi-Fi driver update patches a critical bug that causes Blue Screen of Death errors for some PCs.

    Here’s the full changelog:

    • Fixes random Wi-Fi connections when playing videos online.
    • Fixes Blue Screen of Death errors.
    • Fixes yellow alert message in the Device Manager for the wireless adapter.
    • Includes performance and security improvements.

    To download Intel updates on Windows 10, simply head to Intel’s Driver & Support Assistant tool and check for updates.

    You should see the update today or by the end of December.

    Nvidia 457.51 WHQL driver


    Earlier this week, Nvidia published WHQL driver with version 457.51. This update adds support for RTX 3060 Ti graphics card and fixes Blue Screen of Death crashes that may occur upon waking the device from sleep.

    Another Windows 10 BSOD bug has been fixed where some devices will crash when playing or browsing videos in Google Chrome.

    Nvidia457.51 WHQL-certified driver is available for download through the GeForce Experience app on Windows 10.

    AMD Radeon 20.11.3 driver


    Like Nvidia, AMD has also released its Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.11.3 driver for Windows. This release adds support for the Immortals Fenyx Rising, Vulkan Ray Tracing extensions, and fixes issues with a bunch of games.

    AMD GPU driver version 20.11.3 also fixes rendering issues in games when Windows 10’s HDR mode is enabled, but a bug that causes problems when streaming Netflix app content remains unpatched.

    The new driver is available for download in the Radeon Software app.

    NVIDIA Adds Windows 8 to GeForce Driver Update Stack

    AMD may have been the first to be out with drivers for its Radeon GPUs that are optimized for Windows 8 (WDDM 1.2), but NVIDIA went a step ahead of "special-releases" for its GeForce drivers, and added Windows 8 to its update stack, meaning that Windows 8 will feature in the list of operating systems to pick from, to download drivers. NVIDIA will constantly update these drivers along with mainline releases for Windows 7/Vista and XP. The latest such driver is 296.17. This driver supports GeForce and Quadro GPUs, and according to NVIDIA, is a quick-update over 295.73 WHQL, with the addition of performance optimization for Blacklight: Retribution.

    Windows 10 nVidia Driver Question

    With the Nov Update, Windows 10 became mature enough to give another try. Build 10586 (version 1511) runs great, feels snappy, and has no obvious problems. However, I'm concerned with this version's insistence on loading nVidia's 353.54 driver, which is dated July 13 2015, 4 months ago. On their US website they list all the new drivers as being compatible with Windows 10, (such as 358.91), but they won't load (installer says incompatible with this version of Windows, could find no compatible hardware...). The 353.54 driver runs games without any problems, but why is it taking so long to for nVidia to update this driver? Is it my 780 Ti that's incompatible or is it Windows 10?

    Freeze on welcome screen after AMD driver update

    Interesting, I never thought to scrutinize the integrated Intel driver. I just noticed my Device Manager used to list both Intel and AMD drivers under "Display adapters" but now it just shows a single 'NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080', no more mention of Intel. I'll look into it, thanks for the suggestion.
