Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit
 
 

The AMD chipset/motherboard drivers are readily available in easy-to-install packages directly from AMD, and are updated every 3 or 4 months. Just curious, what is the purpose of using some 3rd party program to do this?

I have been using the same AMD laptop for 3 years, the only time I have ever had a problem was when I updated the chipset drivers but not the display drivers, or vice-versa. The AMD drivers seem like they are not designed to be updated in piecemeal fashion. (IE, updating SATA drivers but still having an older display driver) That's why AMD puts them together in installation packages.
