If you've built a new PC and want to keep it in top shape, both hardware, and software, or you just want to extend the life of your old computer — solving the drivers' issue could bless your system with more performance and stability. Outbyte Driver Updater is a smart tool that can point outdated drivers, look for the latest ones and install them, manually or automatically. On top of that, it also provides detailed hardware information.
The first thing the app will do after the installation is over, is to perform a complete scan for both your hardware stats and outdated drivers. The System Overview lists parts like the CPU, GPU, motherboard, hard drives, memory, and even OS. All the details about these elements are listed in the first half of the Diagnostics tab.
Scrolling down would bring us to a new sub-category called Current Report on Devices Status. The information you get from this list if referential only, as it takes some part performances and compares them to some average results, probably relevant to the current year. The comparison is made for your CPU speed and load values, memory specs, SSD speed, and free disk space. If you have a powerful PC, the golden bar should easily top the white one, but if the system is a bit older, the bars should at least be equal.
That would be the title of the most important sub-category. Here you will find information about all outdated drivers and a way to update them. Clicking a specific driver will show you the currently installed version and the latest one. Also, the app will give information about whom the manufacturer is as well. That way, you can make sure that the recommended drivers come from genuine sources.
However, updating the drivers requires you to register the app, which means that you have to spend some cash to unlock this feature. But there is a way of verifying if the app is worth your time and money, and that is activating the basic version, which allows you to do a one-time update.
All in all, Outbyte Driver Updater seems like an excellent application to have in order to extend the life of your PC and keep it as smooth as possible. On the other hand, there is not much to do in the free version, except to check the system info and outdated drivers.
