Just last week, IObit officially launched its driver updating tool called Driver Booster, which acts as a free stand-alone tool for frequently updating drivers to optimize your PC gaming experiences.
IObit has become a staple here at MakeUseOf. It is covered often, due to the volume of services and tools offered, including things like the Advanced SystemCare PC cleaner, the useful Smart Defrag tool, and the IObit Malware Fighter for fending off nasty malware.
Earlier this year, Driver Booster Beta was released, and serves as one of the few PC tools out there that is capable of collecting an inventory of all currently installed hardware drivers, and then serving as a central “command center” to update those drivers with a single click. This can save PC users – especially gamers – a great deal of effort, because they no longer need to identify which drivers they have installed for specific hardware. They also won’t have to hunt down where to download the correct driver from the Internet, because Driver Booster already has that information. With a click of the button, users can bring all hardware drivers up to the latest version.
According to the IObit press release, IObit Driver Booster Beta can improve PC performance, because most system crashes are due to the fact that “hardware devices can not function properly without proper drivers”. This is especially true for gamers, when a particular game requires a more recent version of hardware driver than the user might have installed.
Another problem that’s remedied by Driver Booster is that since the user doesn’t have to search the Internet for drivers, it’s less likely their computer will become infected by fake drivers downloaded from unreliable sources. Driver Booster contains only verified drivers for the hardware you have installed on your system.
The press release also states that Driver Booster is especially tuned for gaming performance, by focusing on the drivers that are most important to gaming performance. In the release, IObit’s marketing director, Michael Zhao explained the benefits of using IObit’s free Driver Booster software:
Updating drivers is never an easy job for many PC users as it’s time-consuming and problematic. Driver Booster is introduced against this backdrop and it’s the right tool to protect your PC from hardware failures, conflicts, and system crashes.
You can set up Driver Booster to scan and update your outdated drivers automatically, so that you never have to worry about updating your drivers again. It can keep your PC running optimally, without the hardware or system failures usually associated with outdated drivers.
You can download Driver Booster free directly from IObit.
