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).

@MoKiChU  

I need the drivers for the Asus ROG strix b550f WiFi II motherboard, following your instructions I tried these: Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS).
By scrupulously following the steps or first deleting the existing one and then installing it but I still encountered two problems:
1 running install.cmd as administrator stucks at the first step so I manually ran the setup which ended without errors.
2 When I restart the system, Realtek Audio Universal Service is present and running in services but the SS3 software continues to give me the message:

"The current system is not supported, or the audio driver was not installed correctly. TIMEOUT"

I don't know what else to do.

Hi everyone,

I remind you that I do not work for ASUS (everything I do for the ASUS ROG community is out of passion, on a voluntary basis) and I do not replace ASUS Support :

- If you have an issue that occurring with the last audio drivers from your motherboard support page (and therefore that it is not specific to the last audio drivers that I offer) : Contact ASUS Support and/or open a new thread in this ROG Care category : ROG Care - Hardware & Software Support - Gaming Motherboards.
- If you have an issue that didn't occurring with the last audio drivers from your motherboard support page : CLEANUP process then install/use the last audio drivers package from your motherboard support page.

Hi MoKiChU.
The new driver works perfectly on my ASUS ROG STRIX B660-G Gaming WIFI.
Thanks for your great support here.
I really appreciate that.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello @MoKiChU I've read and tried to follow your post step by step for the ROG Z790 Dark Hero, but I couldn't get it to work at all. In the end the installed applications (Realtek Audio Control, etc.) said that it was an unsupported system. I did a system restore and now I'm back to where the original Asus driver (Realtek Audio Driver V6.3.9600.2368 for Windows 10/11 64-bit.(WHQL)) is installed. Can you go in more detail on some parts? Should I disable automatic device installation first?
Under Device Manager - Software Components I didn't find the DTS things, but some Realtek stuff. Shall I keep that? In Device Manager under "Sound, video and game controllers" there's also some Realtek USB Audio device.

I know you're getting flooded with so requests, but I would be really happy if you could help me and anyone else with a Rog Z790 Dark Hero..

Hi,

You are in the wrong thread.

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard with ALC408x codec, so :

You need Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS-DTS) or Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS Legacy) from the first post of this thread[DRIVERS] Realtek USB Audio (AMD 5xx/6xx/TRX40 & Intel 5xx/6xx/7xx).

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.
