Hello friends, this is a question regarding my laptop's drivers. I have recently upgraded my old laptop by adding SSD & new RAM. Then installed window 10 pro.

This is my PC configuration:

Device name desktop-PC
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3110M CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz
Installed RAM 8.00 GB (7.88 GB usable)
Device ID ****
Product ID ****
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Pen and touch No pen or touch input is available for this display

Edition Windows 10 Pro
Version 21H2
Installed on ‎29-‎12-‎2021
OS build 19044.1415
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0

After successful OS installed, I made window updates & it automatically installed compatible drivers too. Now My pc is working well.

But under the Window update, there is a option of additional drivers update. There I found these drivers. Check this image here:

My QUESTION is related to these Xeon(R) drivers. I guess these are server related drivers.

So why windows is showing them to me?

Should I installed them or not?

I see the same with drivers under optional updates. I ignore them. Note that the header on your sheet you show says only use them if you have a specific problem. You do NOT have an XEON CPU!
Every so often the regular Windows update shows a driver or two especially since W11. And my PC is an ACER so I see popups for the ACER PC checkup software and also another popup for Intel updates ( I have an I5, Intel 630 Graphics and Intel wifi and blutooth). All of these work.

Agreed 100%
If you have a specific problem, one of these drivers might help.
Otherwise, automatic updates will keep your drivers up to date.
I've only had occasion to use one, one time.
Device Manager was grousing about a Blue Tooth Dongle.
There was an older Broadcom chipset driver listed. I used it and it did the trick.
Otherwise, IF Device Manager is clean, I avoid installing unnecessary drivers from any source.
