While some users might argue that it's good practice to get the latest drivers from the motherboard support page, you still need to install the network driver to access the internet after a fresh Windows installation. EVGA's decision is a well thought-out one as not all system builders include an optical drive in their builds or want to spend $15 on one just to install a driver.The EVGA flash drive is re-writeable, so you can do with it what you want. EVGA promises this will not increase the price of its motherboards, despite the flash drive being 20x more expensive than a DVD.
No more driver DVDs in future EVGA motherboards including the new H370. Instead you get the drivers on this small 8GB flash drive ???? pic.twitter.com/3ACXv3snFp— Jacob Freeman (@EVGA_JacobF) May 17, 2018
