Iobit Driver Booster 3.0 Beta has been released.

We take a look at what’s new in the latest major version.

This is the UI of Driver Booster 2.3

And in comparison, check the first image in this article. That is what Driver Booster 3.0 Beta 1 looks like. The new interface appears to be flatter and has bigger and sharper icons. The new version displays Device Drivers and Game Components (like Adobe Flash and Java Runtime Environment) separately.

You can run a scan of your system, by clicking the large Scan button. This is what the scanning window looks in the old version (2.3).

This is the new scanning window, which is a bit fancier to look at with the spinning fan.

This is the screen which is displayed after the scan is completed, in version 2.3.

This is the new post-scan screen in the latest beta:

Iobit Driver Booster 3.0 Beta includes a search feature which you can see in the top right corner of the scan result.

Just click on the magnifying glass icon (as seen above), and it will transform into a search box (as seen below). This will allow you to quickly search for devices.

Iobit says that Driver Booster now has a 30% larger database, which supports over 130,000 drivers. The Engine has also been upgraded to scan and install drivers accurately and quickly. The app also has a Device Fix feature, which will help to detect missing drivers, as well as fix faulty drivers.

Driver Booster 3 comes with support for Idle Download which will download drivers, when you aren’t using the computer. It also has an Auto-backup option, which will help you restore drivers, in case something goes awry, like a faulty driver update.

Driver Booster 3 also has a new section called Action Center. This can be accessed from the scan results window. Basically it serves as an advertisement of four of the company’s products: Iobit Advanced System Care, Iobit Malware Fighter, Iobit Smart Defrag and Iobit Advanced MobileCare.

Driver Booster 3 does have an option for skins (themes), although it currently supports just one. You can also use any picture as a custom background for the app.

Iobit Driver Booster 3.0 Beta is Windows 10 ready, and worked without any issues on my computer. You can use the Feedback button in the top right corner of the UI, to contact Iobit and tell them about your suggestions to improve the app, or to report any issues you run into.

Download Iobit Driver Booster 3.0 Beta from MajorGeeks. It is fully compatible with version 2.3, and will install alongside it.
