Hello! So I love my Alpha, but wanted to install the updated graphics driver. Currently the Alpha shipped with 338.x I believe and the new one is 344.x, however it seems the only way to get it is through all the updates to the Alpha UI. I uninstalled the Alpha UI as I do not use it so I looked at the drivers page and there is just the 338.x version. Is there another way to get the 344.x version?
You can try to download and install the lasted driver from the Nvidia website that one might work.

It doesn't. Because the GPU is a 'custom' 860m, Nvidia's drivers do not recognize it so Dell has to modify the drivers to work. I'm just confused because you can download the original drivers from Dell's website, but the upgraded drivers you have to get via the Alpha UI
