For gamers, this means that they'll be stuck with old drivers offering marginal performance.
Luckily, severial 3rd party groups have started "modding" the infs of various GPU manufacturer's drivers.
While most of these work, generally it is good to check with the creators themselves to determine which inf is good for which GPU.
Most of these should be treated as Beta, however, after some testing, usually you can get better performance and compatibility than what you would've gotten with whatever driver your manufacturer provided.

Nvidia: Please read through the omega drivers website, see below. Laptops are apparently supported per the following quote from the driver readme:
These are my "optimized" drivers for the NVIDIA family of video cards/laptops.
