    Driver updates have slowed down and that is a good thing as they are working great now.

    Version 6.0.1.8169 is available on MUC, but it's only for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1... have no idea if it will be made available for Windows 10.

    Yes I noticed that earlier today asturias7, I favour build 8172 as the next one for Windows 10. Probably on Monday.

    the digital signature catalog files for 8169 (hdart.cat, hdxrt.cat, etc.) say otherwise.
    They have OSAttr properties of 2:6.0,2:6.1,2:6.2,2:6.3,2:10.0, which means the 8169 drivers can be used on Windows versions from Vista to Ten. Just need to use Device Manager to install or update to 8169.

    Like with many previous 81xx driver versions from MS, 8169 does not include integration with Creative audio, Maxxaudio & Nahimic audio (their DLL files are excluded from the package).

    Microstar International [MSI] just released a v8158 driver with Nahimic audio integration and Nahimic application software bundled (for those using certain MSI motherboards or laptops using Nahimic audio enhancement)

    I wasn't expecting much from build 8169 but for me it's probably the best sounding Realtek driver I've tried. @asturias7 you need to try this version, think you'll love it :)
