OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
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).

Hi,

HDA Drivers are for Windows 7 & Windows 10 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent
UAD Drivers are only for Windows 10 64 bit 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent (1903/19H1/18362.x or more recent for some Third Party drivers)

HDA Drivers use Win32/Legacy apps (including Realtek HD Audio Manager)
UAD Drivers use UWP apps downloaded from Microsoft Store (including Realtek Audio Control/Console)

HDA Drivers have a tray icon (possibility to disable it)
UAD Drivers don't have a tray icon (without possibility to enable it)


Glossary :

HDA = High Definition Audio
HDA (Realtek) = Standard (NVIDIA) = Legacy (Microsoft & Intel)

UAD = Universal Audio Driver
UAD (Realtek) = DCH (NVIDIA & Intel now) = DCHU (Microsoft) = UWD (Microsoft & Intel before)

DCH/DCHU = Declarative Componentized Hardware Support Apps Universal API compliance

UWD = Universal Windows Driver.



Thank you for this information good sir. I would leave this explaination on your post for realtek drivers. Just my opinion, for noobs like me.

Again thank you.

Hi Mokichu,
- I didn't know what i should install for my Z370-E so I just followed the instruction for Asus ROG SS3. Was that the correct choice ?
Anyway, my pc rebooted automatically but I don't know how to check if the installation was successful. I don't see Realtek audio in Programs and Features.
- Btw won't you give us HDA driver anymore ? Kinda miss the system tray icon.
P/S: Will you stay active on MDL as well ?

Hi,

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF) from this thread. Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process with cleanup step, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process.

Note (in order to choose correctly the install/update process to use) : You have a ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard.

I've also have the Z370-E and looking at the spec of the board https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-E-GAMING/specifications/ it uses SS3.

After having many failed attempts with various drivers I came across this post, thank you 🙂
I followed the instructions to the letter from the ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards section but I couldn't get my version of Windows W10 Pro (x64 Version 1909 OS build 18363.836) to detect the Realtek output. I tried numerous times and was about to give up when I thought to try ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboards.

Following these instructions I could get the Realtek output to detect even though I didn't think this was for my board? (not sure what unbound means)

The only issue I have now...
When I connect something to the front panel audio this takes preference over the speakers connected in the rear and I also do not have an option for Front panel audio is sound settings, that would allow me to swap between front and rear connections. I am also unable to download the Realtek software from the MS store, it gives an error 'Something unexpected happened' Code: 0x803FB005

Any ideas would be greatfully appreciated.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

That's good to know since I use my optical output. I will still wait until MS polishes this month's crop of patches first before installing. They've released and pulled a quite few bad patches after about a week of everyone's beta testing, sometimes even after a month has gone by, so I'll wait till the end of the month. I'm definitely not going to rush into the next version of Win 10.

Hello,
I have an Asus TUF Z390 motherboard - Pro Gaming - which drivers should I install? Sorry but there are so many versions and I want to try something different because standard is a tragedy ... I have Realtek S1200A
Second question - can I uninstall existing drivers using DDU? AND
Thank you for your help

Hello MoKiChU,

nice that you are back.

I have some questions that you might can answer:

- Is it possible to export and import settings within the Realtek Audio Console (or in another way)? If yes, how? Because experimenting with different drivers requires deleting the previous ones and having to change the settings manually every time is kind of frustrating.
- Is it possible to give speaker distance variables via keyboard or commandline? If yes, how? Because for now you can only use the arrow symbols via mouse, so you have to click waaay to many times to get your requested numbers.
- Is it possible to change the settings via config file or commandline (I could not find any path or file, maybe there are as keys in the registry of Windows)? If yes, how? Because the GUI is not a must for experienced users :).

Thank you in advance for your time and work.
Wish you a nice day.

got a SS3 3.16.10.0 update just now. but faulty NahimicService.exe and A-volute crash errors are back! i think these 2 will be a constant issue. i know is not the main driver or the compilations. that is for sure. drivers are solid not even 1 pop or crack sound. so far, the 6.0.8960.1 are the best one that i have use.
Learn, Play Enjoy!
