I can't do much comparison , but i use SlimDrivers.   It seems to find everything i need.   I'd recommend checking it out.

i have used several driver finder tools, and while they find many, there is no one that finds them all.
for older drivers, i had to install XP on a drive, install the drivers for it, and check what devices they were, and what drivers were used; often combined  driver packs are not found (eg the famous 4-in-1 packs)
