e530 nvidia or lenovo drivers?

2013-01-28, 22:48 PM

Hi everyone I just want to know whether I can install the latest Nvidia drivers from the Nvidia website or do I have to wait for new drivers made by lenovo? The reason is because the latest drivers have a lot of optimizations for games I now play and I really want to get them. Lastly, if I do install the Nvidia drivers, will I loose the optimus capability and will this result in a shorter battery life? Thanks everyone

Solved! See the solution

Hi, sunil23

 

The drivers on Nvidia's site should be fine. Lenovo does not make the drivers; they just place them on their website so that users can find all drivers in one place. 


I wouldn't think you would lose Optimus capability, as it is a Nvidia product. If the new driver supports it, then it should work just fine.

 

Hope it helps,

Adam
