    Another way to find them is to have a look at catalog.update.microsoft.com

    @Matthew

    Unfortunately not all drivers appear in Windows Update catalog. For example 15.200.1023.0003 is not listed explicitly: catalog.update.microsoft.com/…/Search.aspx

    Also when directing someone to catalog they still have to step through the UI rather than just clicking a direct link. Hacking catalog to find the direct download links isn't too hard though.

    I had no idea this would be interesting enough for anyone to goto the trouble.

    Thanks Anand!
