    The 8205 drivers are really good, for me the bottom end is as good as 8199 but Realtek seemed to have cleaned the top end up and got rid of the slight sibilance that was present on build 8199 :)

    Hi , so just extract the .cab and run rtlupd64.exe?

    I am assuming the larger 138mb files are the 64bit version on MUC...

    Hi,

    No, extract the .cab file and go to device manager then update driver for your sound device by directing it to the folder containing the extracted files.

    Cheers,

    8199 has a bad echo site I might try the new drivers but right now I am forced on my older laptop. My house last week power box nearly caused a fire so we are using reserved power with ugly light bulbs and yellow extension cords so I cant use my main PC. I am mostly on my phone.

    Totally agree. I've been listening to some music for the past couple hours and this update rocks.

    I just wished whenever I update, the new drivers would work without a reboot so for me, I can't test the drivers until my next reboot...

    Hi,

    They should work without having to reboot first. Just ignore the message.

    Drivers updated thru Device manager do not require reboot but drivers updated from .setup.exe do restart twice because at first run it uninstalls drivers and after restart it installs new drivers requiring another restart.

    That's true for my systems with 1703, but for some reason my Insider Preview always demands a reboot when I update the Realtek audio driver via Device Manager.
