When you first install windows do you immediately install the chipset drivers OR do you FULLY update windows first, then the chipset and other drivers etc....?
(Assuming Intel) The chipset driver has always been a weird thing, as Windows has never come with them, and Windows Update never has them. Even Intel's explanation for what actual chipsets they are for can be kind of obtuse at times. The OEMs always have them as downloads though, if one knows how to get tho those downloads. I don't know if I've ever seen a system not run properly for not having those drivers. I assume it can happen.People still install chipset drivers? Assuming Windows 10 installs my NIC (and it always has), I run Windows update and enjoy my day.
Based on what I've read, it can give a 5% to 21% boost in performance. It keeps windows from parking cores and reduces the change in power per core from 30 milliseconds to 1 millisecond. It also comes as part of the chipset drivers so if you don't have it, you're probably not running the latest drivers anyway.What are the differences between AMD high performance and a standard high performance?
