    Looks like the same driver...last 4 digits match. Made for the chip and OS. I believe Win 10 or the OEM will put their stamp on the same driver, but the last 4 is what matters. I have the 5th gen I7 5500 and it did the same thing.

    Thank you for the explanation.

    Yes, it runs very well. No noticeable difference from the Acer sourced driver, but at least it's running Intel's latest now. The only downside is the Intel Driver Update Utility still says "a customized computer manufacturer driver is installed". Unless the reason for that is I need to update the chipset driver to the Intel version as well. I'm not certain how to go about doing that.

    Yeah, unless you do a clean install and wipe you drive of all the OEM crap it will always say that. Just check periodically and use the go around to download the drivers from the vendors site, Its a good practice anyways. Wish you the best.
