AMD Ryzen 7 1700 with stock cooler
MSI Armor OC RX570 8GB card
Gigabyte DS3H-B450
16GB ADATA XPG 2400 mHz DDR4 RAM
Crucial MX500
7200 RPM WD Blue HDD

I am facing some game stuttering and I wonder if it is a good idea to update the chipset drivers or not on my Ryzen build because i heard some rumors of chipset drivers failing computers. Is this the case or not? Also what are the benefits of updating chipset drivers.

what bios version are you on? depending which version you on, might need to do a few updates as some are necessary before others.

if you update bios its advised to update chipset drivers first. I haven't seen any problems about chipset drivers.
benefits? well, if you have the latest they will at least know about newest features in the bios and wouldn't throw errors up caused by incompatability
