I can't tell if I'm installing chipset or GPU drivers

I have an X470 chipset and a Radeon RX580.

I'm trying to update chipset and GPU drivers.

I downloaded the latest chipset drivers which, according to the support page, are 18.50.0422 released 4/22/2019 downloaded from here - https://www.amd.com/en/support/chipsets/amd-socket-am4/x470.

When I run the installer, it says I have version 19.4.1 currently installed on the left, then has "Local Driver" 18.5.0 on the right. 19.4.1 is the current driver for the Radeon RX580. 

As far as I can tell, it looks like the chipset driver installer wants me to replace the GPU driver with an older...something...driver. This doesn't make sense. Why would the chipset driver installer reference the GPU driver at all?

What am I missing?

The chipset drivers do not include graphics drivers. Chipset drivers have a different package version than the graphics drivers.
