Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
update again Brink. v184.108.40.20624 is now available from MS Update Catalog (yup, fast and furious are those new Realtek audio drivers showing up on the Microsoft Update Catalog site).
since I already update the realtek audio drivers to v7622 on my Windows based machines that use different onboard Realtek audio chips, I'll pass on 7624 as there's very little difference between those versions.
Guys why is it whenever i use the realtek actual driver other than the ones posted to microsoft server, that my realtek audio sound manager leaves?? still have not figured that one out.
Thank you Erpster. First post updated.

As erpster pointed out the Realtek HD drivers are coming out thick and fast. Wonder if this build will be up on Microsoft site in a couple of days.
I wonder for beta versions, can they just use the same version number later and just WHQL it without changing anything? It would be good if Realtek actually provided a changelog.
Yes beta builds can be submitted to Microsoft and if passed by WHQL they can be put out as WHQL builds. However as far as I know Microsoft charge a fee for this. Makes you wonder if Realtek have money to burn.
I agree with you on the changelog issue, it would be a big improvement if Realtek provided one with each new build.
Of the recent builds though I'm favouring 7624 as a good sounding one.
Realtek seems to be the widely used generic for Ethernet and audio. I mean it seems like they WHQL every few days and they Beta release a few versions at the same time so it would seem like they can take the Beta and later WHQL it. I'm just hoping there is a way to force install so I can get the Loudness Equalizer option which I don't have.
Realtek is a big and rich company, DooGie - that's why they have lot of money to constantly pay MS to have their software WHQL'ed (aka. Microsoft Certified). Same with other big companies like Intel, AMD and nVidia.
And yes, version 18.104.22.16825 has just shown up on the Microsoft Update Catalog site (only viewed in Internet Explorer, not Edge). Plus here are the 32bit & 64bit download links to v7625 for those using NON-IE web browsers as a Download Now button will be available to manually download the CAB file packages.

Realtek is big with $1029 million, $1.029 Billion in revenue per year but they are not as big as Intel as they are roughly only 20% the size of Intel, they are bigger than AMD and nVidia combined, that's probably because nVidia and ATI (the video card side of AMD) doesn't manufacture anything on their own as the chips are actually made by TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor) so Realtek can eat AMD and nVidia for lunch twice and still be bigger. They do have a big market share in semiconductors for things like NIC, Audio from what I know and is a Taiwanese based company.
Realtek's Market Capitalization is $33.96 Billion
Intel's Market Capitalization is $150.8 Billion
AMD's Market Capitalization is $1.422 Billion
nVidia's Market Capitalization is $13.88 Billion
Anyone here managed to get Viper4Windows working with the Realtek drivers and Windows 10? I tried both methods listed below and V4W doesn't seem to even change the sound in any way no matter what I do...
This one did get rid of the enhancements tab in sound:
