This driver package for the Lexmark Laser Printer Optra E312L device contains both the PCL (Printer Command Language) and PS (PosctSript) drivers. The PCL from Hewlett Packard and the PS from Adobe are page description languages. These languages are used in describing how printers print a page. Both page description languages are suitable for different printing functions. A PS driver generally is capable of sending a page description to the printer where its rendering was performed. On the other hand, a PCL driver performs almost all the rendering operation on a local workstation with the information being sent to the printer in binary form. Because local workstations usually are faster compared to printers, printing with PCL is faster as opposed to printing with PS. In addition, because PS needs less printer memory, other printing tasks can only print if they are sent utilizing a PCL driver. On the other hand, the PCL page description language is a simpler language compared to PS so it cannot perform complex scaling and drawing functions afforded by PS.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
