    Crosshair VIII Formula AMD Chipset Drivers--Discrepancy

    If you download the new AMD chipset drivers, which include: AMD Ryzen Power Plan, AMD GPIO Driver, AMD SMBus Driver, AMD CPI Device Driver and AMD PSP Driver, you may have noticed there is a discrepancy between versions Asus versus AMD itself offer--and for both the dates are about the same--with a two day difference on the dates (this date difference is not a problem). You can downloaded them from Asus or AMD. If you go to the AMD website and then the Crosshair VIII Formula page and want to download these drivers, they come as a package in both cases. The process of doing this is basically the same.

    Now when you have to the option to select which of the above you want to install, you can see the driver numbers for each. In the case of one of the above drivers all of the versions are the same on both websites, and oddly, except for one.

    The AMD PCI Device Driver from the AMD website is 1.0.0.82. The one from the Asus website is 1.0.0.81.

    Are either of them okay to install? Is it better to install the newer one? Could 1.0.0.81 be specifically for this Asus motherboard or something?

    Why are these drivers different?

    The newer one should be better. The version 1.0.0.81 is not ASUS specific, it is the previous driver AMD official version. The changelog between 1.0.0.81 and 1.0.0.82 just mention "Bug fixes" , implying that the new 1.0.0.82 version *should* be more stable.
