Drivers Versions

HP Recommended
Envy 17t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, got new HP Envy Notebook 17t-u000 CTO (Energy Star) with Nvidia Ge Force 940 MX. I noted that my video driver is v21.21.13.6909 BUT, according to specs this driver version is for Nvidia Ge Force GTX 1080?

Searching HP site my Nvidia GE Force 940 MX should have driver 10.18.13.5937.

So am bit confused.

Was my PC supplied with wrong video driver and do I need to install the correct one or is 21.21.13.6909 version shoowing for a different card also good for my notebook's card?

Please let me know,

Thanks

Peter

Hi, Peter:

 

I used 7-Zip to explore the driver file on your notebook's support page and here is a list of all the graphics adapters supported by the driver...

 

The actual driver date is 01/24/2016, 10.18.13.5937

 

As you can see from the list below, the Nvidia Ge Force GTX 1080 is not listed among the GPU's supported by this driver.

 

If your video adapter is working fine with the driver it has, I wouldn't mess with it.

 

I would have to say that the driver your notebook has is newer than the one on the support page and probably supports an entire range of GPUs like the below one does, not only the GTX 1080.
