New Asus Apex Z790 Encore Sonic Studio Question

According to the Asus specs for both the OG "white" Z790 Apex & the new "black" Z790 Encore it says on the Asus product pages something like this for both motherboards:

Immersive Audio: ROG SupremeFX ALC4080 codec with Savitech SV3H712 amplifier, along with DTS® Sound Unbound and Sonic Studio


...Yet the Realtek Audio Driver V6.3.9600.2368 for Windows 11 64-bit.(WHQL) on the Z790 Encore support page DOES NOT have Sonic Studio included in the driver package. It only has DTS Sound Unbound. I've tried using Mokichu's Audio drivers for the "white" Apex https://rog-forum.asus.com/t5/downloads-for-motherboards/drivers-realtek-usb-audio-amd-5xx-6xx-trx40 and they do not work and do not install SS3. They did work perfectly fine on my "white" Z790.

So what gives? Does the new Encore have the SS feature or not?

Hi everyone,

ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboards users : SS3 becomes obsolete and was discarded by ASUS in favor of SS (Sonic Studio) which will be directly integrated into Armoury Crate soon.

To switch from legacy Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS/SS3-DTS TRX40) to Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS-DTS), you have to 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).
