Yes, all CPU's need some form of drivers*. However, Windows Update (in windows 10) should take care of this issue. If you are having a problem with drivers, I would recommend going into "Device Manager" and searching the system for needed drivers.

*Usually a generic driver will work; you shouldn't need to go searching for a specific one online unless Windows can't find it.

would recommend downloading the mother boards drivers if you have not yet every thing should run correctly once done from the manufacturers web site support page

would not recommend using a generic driver as i just said in another post drivers are basically translators for the hardware to talk to each other using incorrect or not the proper ones can / mite make thinks much harder make system slower etc

generally on a desktop the dedicated graphics card disables the integrated cpu graphics since its not needed . on a laptop some have both enabled so when you want the battery to last longer it can use the slower cpu integrated graphics rather than the faster more power hungry dedicated card 🙂

if your using a dedicated graphics card theres no need unless your planing to use the integrated graphics chip ?
Thanks for the answer thats exactly why i asked this question, because my laptop has both of them but on my pc there is only dedicated driver so i dont need cpu graphic drivers any more.
Thank you so much for you help🙏
