Hi everyone, I've noticed that I get random audio popping while listening to an audio Stream in Chrome while I am browsing other tabs or have Chrome in the background.
I have forced Chrome not to throttle background tabs and have checked that I have the latest drivers. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
The audio sounds great if I have that tab in focus, but as soon as I start browsing another tab, I get intermittent pops. This happens with multiple speaker setups and with headphones on the front IO ports. I'm thinking it is a driver issue. I have all audio enhancements turned off. I see that there are some similar issues with the previous boards but I don't see a consolidated / agreed upon solution.

Well after playing today, sound issues were back. Not even that but it seems that Sonic Studio's device routing was messing with all applications I was running and there was very high CPU utilization noticed on the audio controller (probably having a hard time routing different audio feeds to different apps simultaneously)
I don't think that a trip to the service center would fix this. Seems like a driver issue to me. Would there be any fix released? If it is legitimately solveable by SC's then that basically means that the QC on the audio chip is that bad considering how many people are complaining. To think that ASUS has highlighted it as "best gaming audio" 😞
