Generally speaking...there is no reason in the world...to want to download the latest driver updates for hardware...if your system is working fine.
IMO, users should update drivers with the same approach many of us have for updating the BIOS...if it ain't broke, why break it?
Updated drivers are produced by vendors...primarily because new equipment has been sold which requires the newer drivers. A secondary reason for producing new drivers is to overcome known hardware problems or provide additional function to a device not otherwise previously possessed.
That leaves those persons who update drivers constantly...doing so unnecessarily and with no gain of any sort.
