Will there ever be an updated Switchable Graphics driver for W500 (Vista)?

Well the current driver is quite old and I failed in modding the current Switchable Graphics driver to include new drivers.

 

So, will there ever be an update for Switchable Graphics in Vista for the W500?

I don't think there will be for Vista; it doesn't support heterogeneous adapters, and the Vista package uses an AMD proprietary driver wrapper which I doubt will see further update.

For us on Windows 7, we're able to apply the latest Catalyst drivers with good results. (11.4 is FAST.)

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
