Why is Lenovo so slow in updating to the latest drivers?

2018-12-17, 3:37 AM

If you look at the driver version for the Intel HD graphics for X1C6, the latest version posted on Lenovo's site is 24.20.100 which came out in October but if you go to Intel's site, you will see that the latest drive version is 25.20+. It's the same thing with the other drivers for Intel Wireless Lan, Synaptics TouchPad, Chipset, etc. It makes me wonder what the IT people at Lenovo are doing...

Hi ThinkPadBrah! Welcome to our forums community. The Intel drivers from Lenovo website are sometimes not up to date compared to Intel's website. The one on the Lenovo website is tested by Lenovo to work with the said model. It takes time for Lenovo to validate the updated driver to work since it will go through some tests.
