Question Samsung SSD vs Win10 Driver - Battery life

Hi all,

Just a quick question.. I recently upgraded my laptop to a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB drive and I'm wondering it it makes sense for me to install the Samsung v3.3 driver? I've read that this can have a significant negative impact on battery life vs the native Windows 10 driver. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Article below is a little dated but I'd love to get some forum users perspectives on this.

Well I was wondering if newer versions of the driver have improved efficiency. I was hoping someone might say hey - v3.3 is an improvement! Thank you, thank you for the feedback.
