Strix SOAR / XONAR Windows 11

Any ETA on STRIX Soar day 1 drivers for Windows 11? It's dropping Oct 5.

Similarly, has anyone tried Windows 11 dev builds and seen if the current Win10 drivers work?

https://www.asus.com/au/support/FAQ/1046453 - I know there is this page - any updates?

Thanks

Almost 7 months to get drivers??

Windows 11 was officially released during October of last year. That's not counting the numerous dev builds available before that.

What's going on? :mad:


Right. It doesn't take that long to develop drivers

Creative already have Win11 drivers for a number of their sound card products that came out at the same time. This is slack from Asus.

End of story for me -> I've changed my Asus Strix RAID DLX with a Sound Blaster AE7. I definitely won't recommend ASUS for their poor software/drivers update.

I can understand your dev team are busy but seriously ... Windows 11 has an alpha/beta period to prevent drivers/software issue with current hardware (as a reminder: sound cards like strix raid dlx can still be purchased from Amazon or other hardware seller...).

Good luck for other people still hoping a drivers update soon 😉

I'm going to hold out till the end of May. Asus's proposed deadline for a driver for my Strix Raid DLX. But trust me, I already have a AE-7 card in my amazon cart.

I had the AE-5 before this Raid DLX card. It randomly would load into windows without it being recognized. Had to do lots of restarts. So I "upgraded" to the strix card. Wish I would have just went straight to the AE-7.

We expect to release new windows 11 drivers one by one from May 2022 to fix this issue. One by one...

Hi reddragon

The only place I trust is the ASUS Support Center.

Select your operating system - Version 1.1.22

Me too, but I cannot use the exe to do the install as it wont recognise the sound card. I'm less than impressed parting ways with more than $2,000 in Ausus gear this month getting a new high end mobo and video card, only to find a $400 sound card is rendered useless in Windows 11.

Yeah. We've all been waiting for 7 months now for these drivers that will hopefully fix the issue.

If I didn't have a conscience I would have sold this card to someone else months ago and just gotten something from a different brand.
Unfortunately I can't in good conscience sell something to someone that I know isn't working in Windows 11.

Both my Strix RAID PRO are not working properly. I have on my 2 systems. Even on the latest Windows 10 build, the mic detection is not working. I cant use my mic anymore...really, we need new drivers ASAP. This is not ok Asus.
