With every new AAA title Nvidia and AMD launch new drivers for their graphics cards that provide best possible experience for the game through effective optimization. However, for some reasons some users are left unaware of these drivers, so to tackle this Microsoft will be bundling the drivers with the games on Windows store.

This automatic driver installation should improve the Windows Store and make an attractive proposition for PC gamers. However, there is one problem with the automatic updates as sometimes the latest drivers come with bugs of their own which can cause instability within the games.
