In this update, Windows 10 will gain the ability to stop including driver updates in Windows 10’s update options menu, which will finally stop Windows 10 from accidentally installing the wrong GPU driver and give PC gamers full control of their GPU drivers.  

Right now Microsoft has set minimum driver requirements for their UWP games, which will force gamers to upgrade their GPU drivers when they want to play the latest games from the Windows 10 Store.
