no they don't

Bluetooth Drivers need to be updated, Intel chipset drivers, nVIDIA Drivers, Intel Management Engine Interface (heck if you install the old MEI your computer will stop booting after you restart)

Have 8.1 installed with no issues so far.

I don't have Win8.1 on my G75VW, I"m not sold on the OS yet!
(tried w8, was too buggy for me on my G75VW)
So I can't comment on my experience with Win8.1!
But I think the drivers for your 'DeskTop" are not the same as for the G75VW!
(The G75VW has specialized custom operational hardware, needs custom drivers for Win8, and Win8.1)

yes I agree with Gottiboi55, I would at least wait for MS to release it to the public. Asus won't post any updated drives for it until then. I don't think there's anything super exciting about Win 8 or 8.1 unless you have a touch screen. Even then not much. For me the last windows release that was really something exciting was window 2000, the first MS OS that actually worked

After upgrading my computer (Asus G75vw), my WIFI no longer works properly. I'll be connected to the WiFi and after 5min or so it would disconnects. Not only would it disconnects, it would knock everything else off the WiFi.

Now I tested this to make sure it wasn't some other problem. I downgrade back to Windows 8 and it worked fine. Is there something that's not compatible with my router or something is wrong with the driver?
The router I'm using is a LinkSys Cisco (E1000 I think) with DD-WRT installed. Based on my info, what could be the problem?

Thanks for the help everyone.

Did you download and install the 8.1 drivers for your NB? http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=G75VW&p=3&s=388, the Bluetooth and WiFi 8.1 drivers work great for me.

That's strange, I recently did a clean install of Windows 8, and upgraded to 8.1, no issues at all so far, with the network, playing games, running my software, everything seems to work fine. You sure there's no hardware issue you may be having?
