What are Drivers?

Drivers are a set of instructions, or code, that act as a go-between from one part of your computer to another. In this case, it allows Windows to take better advantage of your graphics hardware, with fewer bugs and crashes and faster performance.

Note that our driver updating application, Driver Reviver, does not support beta drivers, but in all other cases, it’s the best choice for keeping your drivers updated, system-wide. Try it out now!
