So which is correct ?

Have you checked the source of those drivers to find out what the current drivers are and if they are regular release versions of the driver/s.

I don't know where these drivers are sourced, but my guess would be that Avast Driver updater only go to the originating driver source.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.5.2378/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/

I can't answer that I don't use Adobe Suite and I don't know where it sources its information from.  That I guess would depend on what video drivers it is talking about those of a graphics card or that of your CPU if that also has a video element embedded in the chip, Intel HD Graphics 620.  I also have an nvidia GeForce GTX 950M graphics card.

I have never sought to update these drivers, if they were even available.
