Windows 11 22H2 release is just around the corner, and the hardware manufacturers are prepared. Even before the official release of the much-anticipated version of Windows 11, other hardware manufacturers like Intel, AMD, and Nvidia have already rolled out the supporting software drivers.
Since 22H2 will only be a feature update, older drivers should work normally. However, it is always recommended that you install the latest, stable drive which has more features and the security vulnerabilities have been patched.
That said, if you have missed out on installing the latest drivers for your hardware when they were released, you can download and install them now.

Run the downloaded .exe file by double-clicking it. The installation wizard will now launch. On the first screen, click Next.

Download AMD Ryzen Chipset Driver With Windows 11 22H2 Support
Not too long ago, AMD also released a new driver version 4.08.09.2337 for their line of chipsets which supports Windows 11 version 2022.
Although Windows automatically offers the latest chipset drivers when they are available through Windows Update. However, they often do not include the latest ones. This is why it is better to get the latest driver directly from the manufacturer’s website. Click on the link below to download the driver with Windows 11 22H2 support:
Once downloaded, follow these steps to install it:
- Double-click on the downloaded driver to execute it and launch the installation wizard.
- In the wizard, you will be asked to select the supported drivers to be installed, where all of them will be selected by default. Click Install to begin the process.
- The chipset driver will now install. When it completes, click Restart to finalize the installation.
If you need more support whilst installing the driver, refer to this AMD Ryzen installation guide.
Download Nvidia GeForce Studio Driver With Windows 11 22H2 Support
Nvidia released their supported driver a long time ago, in July 2022 to be exact. You can download the Nvidia GeForce Studio driver with Windows 11 version 2022 support using these steps:
Navigate to the NVIDIA download page and click Download.
On the next page, click Download again.
Your download will then begin immediately. Once completed, run the file to open the installation wizard.
You will be asked for an extraction path. Once confirmed, click Ok.
The driver will then begin extraction. Once done, the installation wizard will launch automatically. It will initially scan your system to see if it meets the minimum requirements and to detect the graphics card. On the next screen, select whether you want to install the driver only, or also opt for the GeForce Experience. Select the associated radio button, then click Agree and continue.
Now, select the type of installation and click Next. We suggest that you choose Express Installation.
The driver will now begin the installation. This step may take a few minutes. When it finishes, click Close.
Another convenient way to update your NVIDIA drivers is through the GeForce Experience app.
As always, we recommend that you install the latest driver available from the manufacturer since the ones installed through Windows Update are sometimes generic and perform lower than the ones available directly from OEM.
That said, it is even better to install the supported driver(s) for an upcoming OS update so that you do not face any issues at the time of OS upgradation.
