    I always found that the latest driver from the Manufacturer (ie. Dell/MSI) gives better performance.

    If your laptop is not getting driver updates, say you have an MSI GT75, you could easily look for drivers for the GT76 10th Gen perhaps, then use that nVIDIA Driver provided by MSI, you'd get the best results. Same goes for Dell, right now I stole most the drivers from the new Alienware M17 R3/M15 R3 and they work perfectly fine.

    Since the manufacturer drivers work great AND I don't want to deal with the headache of disable Driver Enforcement whatever you call it since I get a watermark on the desktop, I didn't try them nor do I have a need to.

    I havent tried these on my laptop but its working fine on my desktop so far, been only playing FFXV though but that thing eats so much resources at maxed out settings its not even funny lol almost using 8GB of video RAM and using 16GB+ of system RAM when you let it, my previous go to drivers was probably 442.74. I'm also on Windows 1909 as 2004 has been giving people issues. Theres a new set coming out soon so hopefully that irons out some stuff. :D

    Not sure how much longer we may see OEMs providing their own drivers and updates if this nugget from the Razer support website is a harbinger of things to come.

    This might actually be a good thing if OEMs can just publish driver updates to Windows Update kind of like how game devs can publish game patches through Steam. It would mean I don't have to run bespoke tools to get new drivers or go on my multiple time a week round through a bunch of websites looking to see if any patches or new drivers/firmware are available.
