Get the latest NVIDIA driver updates with this app
TinyNvidiaUpdateChecker, or TNUC for short, is a free and open-source utility software developed by ElPumpo. As its name suggests, this app enables users to check for graphic card updates, download them, and install them. Even better, it downloads the updates without any extra components.
TinyNvidiaUpdateChecker works as an alternative to NVIDIA Geforce Experience. Only this app is more lightweight. Moreover, you don't need to enter any command or open a program, as you can control everything via dialog boxes. It can easily remove telemetry if you want. Although, you will need an app like WinRar to do this.
Download NVIDIA driver updates easily
If you have NVIDIA products, chances are you already used NVIDIA Geforce Experience, the default software for NVIDIA graphics cards. And while the app is not bad, it does eat up a lot of resources. TinyNvidiaUpdateChecker is an alternative that you can use. One that does not use a large chunk of your system resources but will help you get the latest updates.
As mentioned, it is a tool that lets you find and download the latest graphics card updates. First, you will need to tell the app which graphics card you are using. Then, you will find all the information about the device's drivers and take action immediately. You will see the release dates and whether your GPU is up to date or not. If not, you can download the update too.
The app does not need installation. Moreover, it opens in a command-line window, but no commands need to be entered as the entire process is handled through a series of dialogue boxes. Although, you can opt to perform a minimal install, which involves removing telemetry and other non-essential components that eat up your resources. However, note that you need WinRar if you go for this type of installation.
Handy utility for NVIDIA users
In a nutshell, TinyNvidiaUpdateChecker is a great option if you are looking for an alternative to the default NVIDIA update checker. The app offers a convenient tool for checking and downloading driver updates. It is very intuitive and even enables you to remove telemetry and other unnecessary components. However, its lack of GUI can cause confusion, especially among novice users.
