Windows 10 Qualcomm Drivers

Welcome to our Windows 10 Qualcomm Drivers page.

On this page, we will share the information we have on the latest Qualcomm Drivers for Windows 10.

Qualcomm develops chipsets for manufacturers, so the official drivers can not be obtained by Qualcomm, but from the official website of the manufacturer (ex. Dell) who is using a Qualcomm chipset.

“Qualcomm sells Integrated Circuits (IC’s) to module manufacturers or other Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) and under contractual obligations cannot offer end user support.”

“You need to contact the OEM of your equipment directly as we are unable to support our chips once the manufacture has modified them for their particular use.”
