do you need any drivers for a corsair NVMe drive on windows 10 to get the best performance?

the drive is the corsair force mp510 480 gb, from what I can gather win10 has native NVMe drivers that should work good, and looking on corsairs site I only find their SSD Toolbox software which seems to have no drivers only things like, firmware update / maintenance of drive etc,

looking at samsung and their ssd nvme drives, they have their own drivers available for download that increases performance, so im wondering why corsair dont have any for their drives and/or if you could try samsungs driver on the corsair disk to get better than windows10 native NVMe driver performance?

was reading guru3ds review of the disk and it seems they claim you can download the samsung nvme driver to use on this disk?
from this review:,3.html

"To be able to make use of the new NVMe based devices inside your PC you have to have a proper driver installed, this can be downloaded at the Samsung website. This enables NVMe devices to function within the existing operating system I/O stack protocol."

any risk with trying samsungs nvme driver on corsair nvme disk?

thanks for any help !
