    Hey guys, thought of creating one earlier. I'll get to the point quickly w/o any delay.
    If you guys are combating driver issues on v1803 and later(insider's version) try these drivers posted below:
    Disclaimer: For best performance or optimal result, uninstall existing drivers/apps using revo free or similar and use DDU for GPU drivers clean installation.
    If your PC is working fine, don't bother with it! If ain't broke don't fix it is the motto.

    I'll test Chipset SW. As for RSTe 16.x it had bugs and slower than Dell stock driver. So, 16.0.2.x worked for me. Also, judal57 uses the same driver as well through Windows update when he showed WU history of installed packages.

    You need to hit Download Twice since I don't use direct downloads and lets users see what they're downloading and don't blindly download them.
