    Only partial of these updates are visible on hp update assistant. Further, i can also see a gtx 860m gpu update driver. Has anyone installed it? I have installed my latest driver as per nvidia geforce experience

    The NVIDIA driver you mention is most likely an old driver from october 2014.
    The current driver from NVIDIA is version 347.88, the one HP released yesterday is version 344.24
    http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/78583/en-us

    Why they released an old driver I have no idea...I even think the previous NVIDIA driver released on HPs pages was of newer date than this one.

    Is it written somewhere on the website that this is an old driver as hp has said that this driver has been released on 10th april. But yes, as pf now, i am geforce driver -347.88, but it is giving me some troubles in games

    It doesnt say so on the HP website, but during the installation the installable feautures was listed. And there was the driver 344.24 and physX.

    This was on the norwegian website though. I dont think they they upload different files on different websites...but who knows, its HP -_-

    do you guys think there will somehow be a way to convince the 860m chip that it is a 960m chip? The actual architecture and hardware are the same between the two right? This way we will be able to increase it's unlockablilty even more.

    I believe that with some overclocking software and/or bios modification, this is achievable. However, i do not overclock the gpu for simple reason that i dont want my hardware to conk off due to excessive heat, fans not working properly etc.

    Well, the Geforce Experience hasn't crashed when I have tried opening it, wich it often did on the 347.88 driver.
    As Battlefield 4 is the only game I play, I havent noticed any difference in performance ingame.
