Have you ever wondered if all the drivers of your laptop or desktop’s hardware were updated? Then you’re not alone. I’ve always wanted to make sure that my computer system’s drivers to be always updated for a number of important reasons. One of them is that updated drivers usually means more efficient power consumption for the system, which means better battery life. Another is that the hardware’s functions are more optimized and will operate better with other system hardware, translating to a more efficient computer system.

DriverMax is one of the available software applications that checks and updates your system’s hardware drivers. The software’s user interface is intuitive and similar to the Windows 8 operating system’s interface. The software’s functions are shown in colored panels and these include scanning for updates, setting configuration, driver back up and restore, among other functions. After scanning, the main interface will show the number of outdated drivers and you can then click on this notice to view additional details. You can also choose to back up drivers and compress them in one super file.

Straightforward and intuitive, DriverMax is an excellent system driver updating software that you need to have installed in your system.

DriverMax is a driver manager and updater for your computer which handles and manages the installed version you have in your system and checks for recently released updated ones. This software provides the necessary elements for optimizing your hardware thanks to new controllers that can solve several issues relating to the performance of your system. DriverMax can download drivers for all your components, improving their functions, depending on the official developers, through certain update installations.

Viewing its interface resembles the Windows 8 style tiles with its options available through different boxes. Despite it being very visual, it is not as intuitive as it should be. There are some options included that you will have to guess how they work, like the Popular Hardware section that, though it is very informative, just redirects you to the developers’ website.

Having used DriverMax, we can state that it is software with plenty of room for improvement. There are some problems which can only be overcome through upgrading to a pro membership, but it is not what we are looking for in a freeware application. Although it provides interesting functions like the previously mentioned Popular Hardware list, or the backup and restore option, its main purpose could be greatly enhanced by getting rid of certain limitations.

Additional uses

DriverMax is very handy for gathering comprehensive information about your computer. Although there are better programs than this one for performing this action, DriverMax does it just fine. Additionally, you can create backup files of your current system settings before downloading and installing new components, since you don’t know for sure if they will really correct the issues you are looking for to solve. If you find that the previous one works better with the previous driver on your computer, you can get it reinstalled very easily.

The main function of this driver updater is to get the last version of your system components. In order to perform that, you have to scan the computer looking for outdated hardware elements. Then, a list with the old versions will be shown so you can install the new ones. This step is not done automatically, so you will be requested to select each component one by one and then click on the download button. In order to complete the process, you must create a free account to get access to the file download.
