Why It Is Important to Install New Monitor Drivers and What to Expect

Installing monitor drivers is important because monitor needs to adapt with the operating system you’re using, and it needs to be updated because it may have security risk if you keep it out-of-date. For example, when you first time use Windows 10, you may have to install Intel HD Graphic drivers (if you use Intel) to make your Windows 10 able to use more screen resolution.

And, you have to know what to expect when you install monitor drivers. For most non-tech-savvy users, installing monitor drivers could mean that it will increase the speed of your monitor or so, which isn’t true. Updating monitor driver won’t speed up anything whatsoever because the speed or performance of your computer aren’t relying on your monitor.

But, you can have better graphic, more colors, more effect, and even graphic that doesn’t decrease your laptop’s battery life. Updating or installing monitor drivers is important especially if you’re gamer. Getting greater graphic and more FPS is amazing to play games.
