Future Dated Driver?


Recommended Posts

At the time of writing this, it's 10pm GMT 09/30/2021. A few places are now 10/01/2021. Nowhere in the world is it yet the 2nd.

Yet Driver Booster is reporting saying it has a driver dated 10/02/2021. Specifically for Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I219-LM.

Checking online, the latest driver version available direct from Intel's website is (Dated 5/11/2020), which I have installed. Driver Booster says is available - I cannot find such a driver searching online.


Is this a bug?

Dear Truth,
We confirm that this is a normal situation.
You may please note that we are not driver manufacturers and the drivers we provide come from hardware manufacturers, our updates depend on theirs. For example, if the official website releases this driver update of 2017 only by 2018, there is no way for us to provide the driver update of 2017 in 2017 but only able to provide the update after the release of official website.
Moreover, the date shown in Driver Booster is not the production date of the driver, it’s the date read from the info file.
Hope this will help.
