Suggestion: It would be nice to have a new separate checkbox somewhere for Beta/non-Beta (WHQL) drivers status. And thus remove any mention of Beta/WHQL from Driver Version box, as it will be redundant there.
This way it will be easy to check if a certain system has WHQL or Beta drivers.
I have lots of PCs I use or admin here, so this would be really helpful on checking where WHQL drivers are used, and where not.

The new checkbox could be next to the Driver Version, similar to how the UEFI checkbox is next to the BIOS version line currently. OR it could be near/around the lowest line checkboxes of OpenCL, CUDA, PhysX/etc.

Thanks in advance for your consideration of this! :)
