newer drivers on Support website than on System Update?

2014-02-01, 22:21 PM

Sorry if this is an obvious question but: am I right in feeling that there are newer drivers for my T440s on the Lenovo Support page than are being offered to me when I run System Update? 

If so, how come?

Are these betas? Should I be watching the Support page as well as running Update? 

Just want to stay sensibly up to date. Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

'evening.

 

In my experience, System Update can lag behind a model's driver matrix. I routinely look at what TVSU is offering me and then go look at the matrix for comparison. If a TVSU-offered package for something I want matches the matrix, then I let it install it. Generally speaking, though, I'm pretty conservative about driver updates.

 

Lastly, I don't think I've ever seen a true beta driver in the matrices for my ThinkPads.

 

Hope this helps.
