Hi guys.
I have a lil problem. When I go to device manager, and then CPU it says my drivers are from 2009's so I decided to upgrade them. When I go to http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Notebook-APU-Drivers.aspx#a6 And select A6 series Windows 10 64-bit drivers, it shows me integrated GPU drivers, not CPU. But I need CPU drivers because my drivers are so old. I tried download those which said ''AMD Chipset Drivers'' it was GPU drivers. Any suggestions where I can get cpu drivers?

CPU drivers are not like other drivers.
the driver is written and left alone. rarely will there be an update.
an old CPU driver is still a good driver.

the GPU driver has changed many times since the CPU's release hence the updated GPU drivers.
in short you do not need to update that driver.

I had a laptop with i3 CPU and drivers were released like 1time in 2 years or somethin' so I thought AMD would do the same.

my 955 black driver is dated 2006. and I'm just fine with that. the cores my 955 are based on are derived from older cores, so there is really no need to update the driver even though the 955 black was released after the driver (3 years after).
I cannot speak to the intel driver update, but this is par for the course for AMD

If I had to guess and I am here, I would think the i3 update had something to do with power consumption, updating sleep states or other such minutiae.
