Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).

Note : In order to know which drivers package to use, match the audio specifications of your motherboard with the apps or ask me.


TIPS :

If you want to manage the drivers (remove old/unused drivers for example) that you have in your Windows DriverStore
Use Driver Store Explorer (Right click on "Rapr.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you want better interrupts delivery latency
Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with
MSI Mode Utility (Right click on "MSI_Mode_Utility_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

MR. M,

I have a question.

What are the differences of the realtek drivers, UAD and HDA?

Thank you in advance.

I've got a couple of questions for the OP. I installed the Realtek drivers from ASUS's website, version 6.0.1.8569, for my ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Omega motherboard. I previously only had the Windows generic drivers installed. The Realtek driver is obviously incomplete and older, since I never got Sonic Sound 3 included with the install. I'm also getting this error when I try to open the Realtek Audio Console - "Realtek Audio Console doesn't support for this machine" and yes, that's the English. Searching on this error I found that the ASUS driver I'm running is missing a file. I'd like to get the complete correct driver package for my motherboard so everything works.

So my questions are, is the driver in the first post the correct one for my motherboard and which install instructions are correct for my motherboard?

Since I've been reading other posters comments here about issues with the newest driver and Forza, would it behoove me to wait to update the driver until ASUS or Realtek fixes this new issue? I don't have Forza, but I'm worried about The Division 2, which has been really buggy with sounds and headsets. I'm currently using the optical output to my speakers since it has the most noise free sound.

EDIT: I went ahead and installed, per the instructions, the newest Realtek Driver you posted for my particular mobo. Now both the Realtek Audio Console and Sonic Sound 3 are installed and work without error. Thanks for the links and the instructions. They were an invaluable help. Why can't ASUS post the most recent driver on their own motherboard's website? Seems a little inattentive to us owners whenever we need new drivers to have to search the web and forums just to use the built-in functionality of our mobos.

A note to others. So far, The Division 2 seems to work fine with this sound driver. No crashes or issues.
