They are from the manufacturer. But it is strongly advised to never use them from Microsoft anyhow. Always visit the manufacturers' websites for drivers.

Right. Don't worry about dates. The manufacturer's website always has the latest before Microsoft and the correct version you should be using.

Using drivers supplied by Microsoft is only looking for problems.
