Z70-80 Drive Updates in Windows Update

I see video drive updates for both Intels GPU and Nvidia in Windows updates listed. However, nothing in Lenovo updates at all for either subsystem. The current driver date is quite old as well posted at Lenovo downloads. 


This is with Win 8.1 64bit


Will they work? 

T520 Model 4239 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2860QMbr>; Nvidia NVS 4200M Win 10 64bit
Z70-80 I7 - 5500U 16GB GB - 1TB HD Win 10 64bit FHD 17.3", G840 w/2GB

Re: Z70-80 Drive Updates in Windows Update

hi tripplec,


The video drivers (Intel and Nvidia) should have no problem installing via Windows Update but I'm more concern about the switching function between the Intel and Nvidia as this unit automatically switch between the Intel GPU (for power saving) and Nvida GPU (for maximum performance).


If the drivers from Windows Updates are designed for units that uses switchable graphics / optimus technology then you shouldn't get any problems. Otherwise, you may need to rollback to the lenovo (customized) drivers for the functionality to work.
