what's the benefits of a chipset update ?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
hello...

I usually like to be completely up-to-date with all drivers for my system, including the printer drivers

but I was wondering what benefits I might get from updating the chipset drivers of my motherboard, though I always update the motherboard completely.

Updated drivers will help with component compatibility (memory etc) whilst aiding in the system stabilty department, they'll also have any known bugs ironed out.

I know that updating drivers will give compatibility even more, and a better performance overall, but here I talking about the chipset drivers its self, which seems to be more with the motherboard more than the operating system. so what ???

Your english is very hard to understand but I think you want to know why there are chipset packages that don't get installed with auto updates and why should you run them?

normally there is no reason to have to update mainboard chipset drivers. The reason for the packages is because new chipset drivers cannot possibly be installed in an OS if the Os was released before the chipset drivers were made.

I can't ever remember a chipset driver having to be updated. Although it shouldn't hurt. Now bios is another matter.

Does updating your gfx card driver lower your gpu temp?

Flashing chipset bios, then updating system drivers, for me improved temps, and stablity for my 680i lt, also allowed better timings, and supposedly fixed known issues but i never had the issues described in driver update. Reading log of driver updates are pretty good at describing what is updated/fixed

It probably just fixes known bugs. Unless your having issues I see no real need to update them.

Updating GPU drivers is something everyone should fairly often, but updating stuff like Southbridge drivers, and onboard sound aren't really going to do much except fix a few bugs.

it seems that this will be out of the matter, but if only you tell me what's the hard in my English ??? am really surprised, that you are the first one that tells me this. though I have learnt English ON MY OWN, with no private course/class ever, and even before I have a PC, just depending on Cambridge books, and Oxford, and Longman dictionaries.

and for sure... I know that I may make some grammatical mistakes, or in worse cases, some dictation mistakes, which is more likely to be caused by the quick typing, but this can't be called VERY !?!?
