Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.

You answered your own question. You notice you used the word "Almost"?
In that quailier lies the range that can make al the difference in the world in some apps.

Intel IGpu's are garbage but they can manage some tasks (barely) if the driver is tweaked.

Also on my laptop the HDMI sound passthrough does not work on the drivers from Asus but do on the Intel drivers.
Chip manufacturers release fixes that the OEMs do not always update into their releases.
I had a real tough time getting the Intel release to install and now I know why.

No wonder I could update my Razer without a hitch.
I had to do gymnastics every time I ran an update.

Yea, my laptop is ancient now (AMD Puma Quad Core APU 15w tdp - circa 2014) but since day one I was never restricted to using OEM only drivers? Didn't even know this was a thing? Never ran into it whether on business laptops, 'gaming' laptops or even ultra budget $200 range ones from all varying manufacturers.

Good news either way.

Oddly enough, these are pretty much the three manufacturers I've used for laptops (aside from the Acer 'gaming' laptop) and haven't run into the issue?

I've never seen it on consumer line stuff, only business products like probook or vostro. I'll admit It isn't as common as it used to be, though.

The first time I hit the restriction I did not know what was going on. I buy laptops every 10 years so my previous one had nothing of the sort.

First time I ran into this was 2011, work around was to uninstall the OEM driver. Use device manager to set the iGPU to use Windows Basic Display driver then install the latest from Intel's site. Now I no longer have to worry about using this workaround with supported iGPUs.
