Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

    I have a weird issue with the Realtek drivers. Recently I installed a Realtek driver that's a bit older (from 2015) because it produces better sound on my laptop. However, whenever the laptop boots from shutdown, there's no sound. I see the audio playing in the Windows Mixer and under Playback Devices, but there's no sound actually coming out of the speakers. But, when I restart the laptop, everything works perfectly well! I'm at a loss as to what could be the cause of this strange behavior, and I really would like to use that older driver. Does anybody have any idea or solution or suggestion?

    Thanks for the heads up khanmein

    It's worth pointing out that version 6.0.1.8233 is currently only available in a 64-bit build.

    Rolled back the MS HD audio drivers wow amazing sound. What is the point of MS making great generic sound drivers just so WU can push there stupid flat muddy Realtek driver. It was a PITA but I disabled driver updates using Winaero tweak tool and then hid it using WU mini tool but I bet the stupid flat Realtek driver will come back.

    There are quite a few Realtek users here who would strongly disagree with that reddice. Personally I'm really liking the latest versions of the Realtek HD drivers
    If you prefer the MS drivers that's fine but it's no use saying the realtek drivers are no good just because they don't suit you. What loudspeakers are you using?

    I understand but to me the MS drivers sound much better. The only Realtek drivers that sounded the best were 8199 and 8219 the rest sounded muddy and flat.

    Hi all,

    In troubleshooting some system issues I'm trying to determine if I have the most current Realtek driver. Here's a screenshot, but I don't see this driver version listed anywhere. Running latest Windows 10 64 bit version.
