    Intel GMA 3150 drivers for Windows 8.1/10?


      This integrated graphics for Intel Atom N450 only has Windows 7 drivers as seen here:

      Downloads for Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (Intel® GMA 3150)


      The driver contains v8.14.10.2230 with date 10/20/2010 and is compatible with Windows 7.

      I'm aware that this particular Graphics chipset has already been discontinued.



      I have Windows 8.1 installed. And I have a driver which I think came from Windows Update. It contains v8.15.10.2697 with date 3/11/2013. And as far as I can tell, I have no problems with said driver.



      My question is: How do I have a newer driver which is apparently compatible with Windows 8.1 despite Intel only having drivers for Windows 7? And should I try to use the driver from Intel instead of the one that came from Windows Update?
