Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
Well crap...that's a deal breaker for me.
At least you have it. None of that for my poor Gigabyte.
It always amazes me how many variants of a single Realtek HD driver Microsoft can come up with.
If you have a look at the MUC now there are 8 seperate downloads for build 7968
Looking at all the variants in more detail 4 of the drivers are ASUS specific.
I guess the remainder must the pre and the post AU, 32 and 64 bit.
Yep, I always wondered about that too. Usually all the downloads are essentially the same anyway. The ones marked with Asus are smaller because they must remove certain things? But what they remove probably doesn't get installed anyway if use the other download (which I do; I always pick the bigger Realtek one even though I have an Asus motherboard).
Yes, the non-Asus drivers have more .inf files for Dell, etc and more .dll files to accommodate different implementations on various motherboards as well as branding differences. The rest are broken down by 32 vs 64 bit and Pre and Post Win10 Anniversary update.
You can click on the Title of the driver in each row and it gives you the full details
So after attempting to rule out the placebo effect, I guess I have to agree, the fidelity of music does seem noticeably improved. Overall clearer and cleaner sound for sure. It sounds like there's better frequency separation, like the sounds of instruments and even voices seem more distinct in the mix. It's like on-the-fly remastering! lol
Harder to tell sound improvements with game action, but seems crisper at least.
Thank you, most users have found these drivers a good improvement over previous versions. as you say the separation of different instruments is clearer. The bass is still deep though and not boomy.
As for gaming I don't know, if I game with sound through the speakers my Wife always comes upstairs and tells me to shut up and stop killing all those people .
I now game using a Corsair Void USB headset.
Exact same boat here. I'm convinced that:
1. Microsoft broke something in a previous update that killed DISM
2. The CAB is packaged incorrectly.
3. We're both morons
I went through the exact same steps you did (changing permissions, renaming, moving file to root of drive) and nothing works. I even set "Everyone" as the owner on the file and that got me nowhere too. The last time I ran into something this bizarre, Microsoft pushed an update a week later and it was magically fixed.
sfc /scannow reports no issues, btw.
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...
