Forceware 186.12 is out


Recommended Posts

Just spotted these over at Dell.

These are for the Alienware Laptop M17x

Dell calls them 'Performance Drivers', they do include the Performance Driver setup (pdsetup.exe) but this is included with quite a few drivers now, so nothing new.

Not often Dell has BETA drivers as these are.
