I found this folder called Patch in the drivers disc that came with my G750JX

What does this patch do?

Also, in the IRST driver folder, there is an IRSTPatch.exe

What does that do?

I need technical answers please from ASUS Drivers team who really know about this not just some guess

Previous experience has taught me that it is quicker and more direct to make a support Technical Inquiry while logged in to the Asus support site for a registered product. I have the US links below as examples.

https://vip.asus.com/VIP2/Services/QuestionForm/TechQuery

If you don't have a support account, you can sign up here:
https://account.asus.com/signup.aspx?lang=en-us&site=us

Then register your Asus laptop/device:
https://account.asus.com/product_reg.aspx?lang=en-us

After filing the Technical Inquiry you get a confirming email. Their responses take anywhere from a couple of hours to 24+ hours, especially over the weekend. Asus support stops responding on Friday late afternoon, and starts responding again Sunday night - relative to US Pacific Time for US region TI's. They say allow for 48 hours, and even though I have had quicker responses most of the time, I would be patient and give them the 48 hours - especially if the first line support has to escalate to the Drivers Team.

You can respond to their email response, or go to the support site where your Technical Inbox is accessible after you login via your support account.

I will let you in on a secret I use for understanding English from non-English speakers...

First, take the English quote from them.

Put it into the Google Translator, and convert it back into their native language.

"Production line used in the production. user no need to install, if install it is no function at laptop." ==>> Chinese (Simpiified)

生产线的生产中使用。用户无需安装,如果安装它是没有功能的笔记本电脑。

And, then translate back into English :)

生产线的生产中使用。用户无需安装,如果安装它是没有功能的笔记本电脑。 ==> English

Used in the production line. Users do not need to install, if you install it is not enabled laptops.

Is that better Nedmia?

How about I clean it up?

The file(s) are used on the production line to complete the installation. Users do not need to install the files, they are already installed in your laptop.

To me those look like Intel Updates to be applied during the build by Asus. It is part of their process, and I am sure you are updating whatever vendor drivers you find, like Intel, "patching" over your clean install - so you have already - or are about to - do it yourself.

The Windows 8.1 update should pull in some vendor updates too. We shall see :)
