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, excuse my ignorance, my motherboard is a Asus ROG Strix X570-F and I'm using the driver available in the driver&tools download page:

Version 6.0.9088.1
2021/05/12 576.07 MBytes
Realtek Audio Driver V6.0.9088.1 For Windows 10 64-bit.
Improve system stability & Support Windows 10 latest version.

Could you tell me if that one is correct?

Thanks,

Is it possible that Raltek 6.0.9191.1 driver conflict with nvidia 471.11 driver?
After realtek driver update I have flickering imagem in games.
I restored a macrium backup with realtek 6.0.8960.1 and will test for some days and return the results here.

Here's something I've always wondered... Mokichu, are these drivers still specific to Asus? I ask b/c there are a couple .inf files w/Asus in the name (HDXASUS.inf, HDX_AsusExt_AVO_RTK.inf) and a subdirectory called OEM_INF_Extension_-_ASUS. But if I look at the contents of the .inf files, I don't see any reference to anything Asus. So I wonder, would this driver package work for any mb w/same feature set or only for Asus boards?

And thanks for all your hard work!

9200 sound really good.:cool:
For those that don't have 9137(the best over all up until 9200), use these.(or if you want something newer, might be a good idea if you are switching to Windows 11. I bet even Realtek is working to make sure their CODEC chip drivers work well with the new OS).

In any case 9200 is real good and I marked them with red, on my driver download spread sheet
89381

For any driver geeks here in ROG Forums, since I started saving MoKiChUs Realtek drivers on my OneDrive(only the SS§ ones for my system Maximus X Hero) here are the best ones since I started September 2019:
8831.1
8867.1
8923.1
9045.1
9137.1
9175.1
9200.1

What makes a good driver to me is, if it has the same quality as either Intel or Nvidia HDMI passthrough, in that highs & mids are well balanced, and sub bass has clear thump and (especially) punch and is not muffled.
The only advantage of HDMI over Realtek is, with HDMI you can use SS3 upmix surround to let any Dolby/Dolby Atmos playback device give you a much wider sound stage than Realtek.

Hi everyone,

The 6.0.9200.1 version is the first WHQL certified for Windows 11.

Hi,

You're welcome.

Had a question about VAD Media Driver, I see windows attempts to install it as an optional update of the SS3-Only package (it is included in the SS3-DTS package but not in the SS3-Only package). Wanted to know why it is not included with the SS3-Only package?


SSVM (Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer) is built-in only with ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound Gen1/Gen2 motherboards but it is backwards compatible with ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards.

I had included it in the ROG SS3 drivers package at the time but a lot of people complained about its presence and that they wanted to remove it because they did not want it.

In order to give ROG SS3 users the choice, I made an optional SSVM installer (to be used only once) :
