    MB manufacturers definitively have a hand in driver making process.

    windows 10 pro 64 bit

    Hi all ,
    i will confess i cannot remember the last time i actually updated my realtek drivers ,but i did update to 8.2.1.0 a few days back after seeing this thread.
    Now am i on the nicest (in your opinion) sounding drivers ?

    Also if not can someone explain what the many different kinds of drivers are on the MUC page , i know one is 64 bit and the other not but i see sometimes 2 versions for each and its confusing .

    Also i have the Asus Z270F which has inbuilt
    supreme FX and i do not want to break or ruin them, all seems fine on 8210.

    Thanks

    Daniel

    You wont break or ruin the drivers. OEMs use the same drivers we do except they like to skin them. I too have an ASUS motherboard which has skinned the control panel.

    OEMs tend to be a few versions behind if you're lucky or massively out-of-date if you're not.

    i understand that asturias7 I just felt that Erpster with all the help he's given me and others over the years needed to know he was operating on a misconception. I have no doubt he believed what he said was true, but how would he know if he never encountered it. so fir the sake of all the people he helps I mentioned it.

    there also is another site that has modded several realtek drivers that change the look and feel of the audio Manager one such example is here

    Ive heard for years that the motherboard determines the interface and not the software but it simply isnt true. it may be for most users but not all. as with anything in life, there are ALWAYS exceptions to the rule

    Well, it's both HW and SW. SW looks at HW and sets predetermined looks and options for it. I just couldn't find what triggers the change.

    CountMike, that sounds accurate from what Ive seen too, .and I as well have tried to figure it out, but im not smart enough to run it down

    but when I saw changed inf files were giving entirely different interfaces I knew it couldnt be just Motherboard or hardware based......software has to contain a triggering mechanism otherwise they couldnt change the look on the same machine. there's no other explanation

    they change presets what functions are available (dolby, dts, srs) and colors and look of the interface

    Just downloaded and installed Asus Rog Hero 6 drivers (we share same CODEC chip) and there's very little difference from my old one:

    I never use the control panel. I don't want to color the sound. I keep the EQ on flat and let the speakers do its job.

    So is it okay to stick with 8199 that WU pushed as they are the best sounding? I hate updating working drivers.

    Especially when I try every build that is released, I need a reference sound. Same with my hi-fi systems, for the last 35 years I haven't had a tone control on any of my amps. Just on/off switch, volume and output selection
