I also think just for compatibility reason

Microsoft inbox SATA/AHCI and NVME drivers are much more "reliable" than the Intel ones. Use Microsoft driver if not for a particular reason.


 
I totally agree with this general statement.
Reasons:
  1. The modern generic MS Win10/11 in-box SATA AHCI and NVMe drivers are much better than the older ones and compatible with nearly all SSD health tools, which are delivered by the SSD manufacturers (e.g. Samsung Magician, WD Dashboard etc.).
  2. As a consequence many chipset manufacturers have already stopped the further development of their own specific AHCI/NVMe drivers.
Only exception: Some SATA connected optical drives don't like to be run run in AHCI mode. So it may be a good idea to connect the CD/DVD player/burner to a separate (non-Intel) SATA Controller and - if such option is applicable - set it to IDE mode.

Ok thank you for your answer
So it's better that I stay with the Microsoft drivers then?

Usually yes, but not generally. It depends on your specific hardware configuration and on what you are mainly doing with your PC/laptop.
That is why I recommend to find the best choice yourself by testing different SATA/NVMe drivers. It is very easy, takes only a few minutes and gives you security for having chosen the best option.
Tip: Don't forget to set a "Restore Point" before starting the comparison tests. This way you can recover your present configuration at any time (even in case of a not bootable system).

Ok thanks, that's just for that (my question in the 1st post, but in French)

With only a DVD player connected to the Intel controller and sometimes an external SSD (otherwise all disks are NVMe), is it better to keep the native MS driver or to install the Intel SATA/AHCI drivers?

Thanks

PS: For information, I tested the Intel v17 drivers, it works very well, but if the MS are better / preferable
