As well as the usual complaints from overenthusiastic users reporting freezes during setup and mysteriously vanishing files or apps, a low rumble of dissatisfaction could be heard regarding battery life. One Redditor reported a markedly decreased time between charges while another chimed in with similar woes.

For its part, Microsoft recommended that affected users hang fire on manually upgrading Windows 10 until the new drivers make an appearance in the update unless customers are happy to get Intel's latest and greatest on their systems by themselves.

It looks like less and less QC is done, and Microsoft uses the users for it. Sure, bugs can happen, but Intel is not exactly some niece product and there should be a setup available for testing in MS headquarters.
