    .... I suppose there must be a way to find out, for which devices these drivers are exactly meant for...

    Yes, or rather there is a way to find out what your unknown devices are, so that you'll know which driver they need.

    In device Manager look at the properties of each unknown device. On the Details tab look at the property: Hardware IDs.

    Here this known device is PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_9C43&SUBSYS_05CB1028&REV_04

    Type the vendor and device ID into this website to find out what the device is (8086 and 9c43 in this case). It should then be obvious which if any of those drivers applies.

    Yeah but solely on version, it could be anything!


    Yeah manufacturer's drivers are prefered. Except in this case, where Intel Chipset Drivers cause input lag. I don't want to install all INF files. Only some. But Intel doesn't provide individual INF files. Therefore I need to use Windows Update. I had always input lag, after installing Chipset Drivers on multiple computers! I usually didn't install them and I didn't use sledgehammer in past, otherwise Windows will automatically download these anyway.

    I will just try them 1 by 1 and test how it feels and then decide... Since there is no way to find what they are for...
    I see, input lag, you're looking for "Intel - System" in Windows update, which are chipset drivers, you have 3 of them so you have to test each one because all 3 are chipset drivers.

    It's maybe not chipset issue but more likely USB problem which is related to chipset.

    Following article may help you to demystify input lag and how to troubleshot:
    Exploring Input Lag Inside and Out

    If you need help troubleshooting input lag further (in addition to the article above), you'll have to perform a lot of tests ex:
    single player vs multiplayer
    LAN vs WAN multiplayer
    different USB ports
    different keyboard/mouse (eliminating either one)
    different games.

    There are a lot of factors to deal with.

    A good quote that tells everything (from article above), ex. not to expect ultra high microseconds response because it's not always possible, it depends on game server a lot:
    The first subtlety is that there will always be input lag. Input lag is an unavoidable reality that can only be minimized and never eliminated.

    Everything OK, no other way anyway. This would take a lot of time to explain (so many things). So I will say nothing. But thanks for help!

    Again there are only 3 yellow devices, but in picture of WuMgr there are more.
    I have only two yellow devices, but my WuMgr shows nine drivers.

    What the yellow ones need is 👉 Downloads for Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility 👌

    This is most useful, I previously wasn't sure about WUMT in automode. Thanks!
