Benefits of updating Chipset driver

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I couldn't find any answer to what Chipset drivers do exactly for performance. So i am asking will updating the chipset drivers actually help in performance other then fixing bugs?

No.

And it most cases, it's just the INF files - not any actual drivers.

Well, technically it might not upgrade performance, BUT it won't crash as much
