In regard to your question, yes, a new driver version normally includes all the previous features the old driver had plus some fixes or updates done on the new driver, but all that information is include on a single driver.
Just to let you know, the Intel® Driver Update Utility was intended to work with Intel® motherboards, in this case since you are using an ASUS board, the tool might not be that accurate when looking for new drivers.
Additionally, the Intel® drivers are generic drivers, which mean they might or might not work with your system and that is why we always recommend to manually install the drivers provided by the manufacturer:
In there you will have all the proper drivers for your motherboard, and you will be able to see the latest version of them.
Normally to install the driver using the .zip file, you just need to download the .zip file and then use a tool to extract the information, most of the peers use Win RAR:
In there you will be able to extract the files, select a location where you can extract them, and then run the driver file to install it:
Download the .zip file
Open Win RAR and select “extract” in there you will see different options of where to extract the files to.
Then look for those files and normally you will see one file that says “set up”, that is the one you need to choose to install the driver.
