    I don't know very much not to say almost nothing about benchmark, but this says that the drivers are not really making the TF810C work better than before right?

    Drivers from the manufacturer would obviously be better but the newer drivers have noticeable effects on the sound and video playback, at least for me. I guess if there is no noticeable difference in actual operation it doesnt really matter as we have no drivers from Asus.

    I've seen that during the day Asus have updated the manuals from 17 languages this morning to 19 this afternoon, so I hope this is a prelude to new driver updating coming soon...

    I've just noticed my headphone socket isn't working. Can you guys still use headphones with these drivers?

    I noticed it as well. Maybe they are starting to support the Asus VivoTab in the next time.

    I have installed all the drivers Breed summarized (and actually, I found the HP chipset and touchpad drivers). I have not had any stability issues since loading the drivers. My TF810C has been rock solid since installing the HP and Lenovo drivers. I have not noticed any slow-down, as benchmarks seem to be showing. The only side-effect I see it a slight increase in CPU % usage while actively using the touchpad. As soon as you stop using the touchpad, CPU usage drops.

    I'd rather have a stable tablet than higher synthetic benchmarks, which in real-life usage is probably not even noticeable.

    Breed (or anyone else), have you tried to install the Intel chipset drivers from Lenovo site? they are from the Thinkpad 2 tablet:

    Intel IO Driver
    gehm19ww.exe
    917.27 KB Windows 8 32bit 6.2.9200.12560 21 Dec 2012

    They appear to be newer than the HP ones if the date is right.

    I've updated the drivers and my headphones still work.

    I noticed some weeks ago, and this is important, that the process "system - ntoskrnl.exe" sometimes keeps the CPU AT 25% even when the tablet is sleeping, because I have seen the battery getting drained fast even after some hours of sleep, so keep checking if that process is consuming CPU, because when the process is at 0%, my tablet barely drops a few %s during the whole day.

    So I recommend everyone to check regularly the Task Manager for the System process, and close it if it's consuming CPU (it should be at 0% all the times). It happens even after I upgraded to Intel Chipset HP drivers.

    Best way to check is to verify if the individual components on the tablet have newer driver versions. Can't do that myself at the moment.
