Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
Many win7 Drivers work in 10 too , for me anyway , maybe win 8 ones too? but I never had Win8 so not sure...
I don't understand it either but everyone's Audio inputs and outputs is like yours so don't lose sleep over it....
I installed as old as Vista_Win7_R249 drivers and they worked.
Oh well that's good to know.
Driver's for the M-Audio 2496 (my card) only go back to Win 7 SP1. It seems kinda silly but I recall reading about someone finding something malicious in the legacy drivers so I became paranoid.
I'm considering looking for a new Audio Interface.
I think the Realtek ALC892 is a quite a quality chip...
Realtek drivers? Is there any security risk in older drivers?
Not that I ever heard about , but why would you buy a new soundcard if you have the onboard Realtek ? they are very good on modern boards.....either it or the M-Audio should be disabled ( or remove the M-Audio)
If I decide to get into audio recording I'll probably want a dedicated Audio Interface which would bypass the onboard chip.
Yes onboard Realtek is very good now, my mobo has an onboard amplifier as well but I can't find any specs on it. I was thinking about using a headphone amplifier but I don't how much better one would be than the onboard one.
Drivers version 22.214.171.12430 and 126.96.36.19933 are now available from the Microsoft Update catalog.

Thank you DooGie. First post updated.
It took me a while of listening before I could decide on this version Mike. After a while I decided I like the sound. It's definitely not as smooth sounding as previous releases but has a lot of detail.
Not made my mind up yet.
Yes Mike they are good
However I use them differently to you. For listening to MP3s I use the Realtek drivers and foobar, for gaming I use a Corsair Void Headset with inbuilt soundchip and when using Skype I use the Realtek drivers for the output sond and the inbuilt webcam mic for the speech.

I installed 7933 the other day and I love it.
On my system it sounds great.
Hello : I have my realtek driver tweaked in windows 7 , I have it set in the registry to have 2 outputs , instead of one - will the new win 10 driver be able to be adjusted ...
I have a Jabra bluetooth speaker (the Solemate Mini). On Windows 8.1 I plug it in to my laptop using the 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable and then, when I watch a movie, it correctly outputs to the speaker and does not use my laptop speakers....
New RealTek HD Audio Driver available in WU.
My ASUS M4N68T-M V2 has a VIA VT1708S onboard audio. The driver I have that worked in Windows 8.1 v10_1200a won't work in 10. Windows doesn't even see the onboard video so it doesn't even look for a driver. It doesn't show up in device manager. In...
