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 (https://github.com/lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer/releases/latest) (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 (https://mega.nz/file/kd11WISZ#mBd-IKDz63-dkoVLxHpN4BerYxSi1npxr7cWTkMG-UY) (Right click on "MSI_util_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable Fast Startup (https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1031533/) or totally disable hibernation (https://support.microsoft.com/help/920730/how-to-disable-and-re-enable-hibernation-on-a-computer-that-is-running) (Fast Startup included).

Thanks for keeping this updated. I'm updating every time you do in hopes that the SPDIF output sporadic dropout will be fixed. Thanks!

Hi, I have a ROG STRIX TRX40 MB - I usually see an error "Controls the DTS audio processing object" in Reliability Monitor.

I believe I need to update the driver for that? I wonder which one from your links is right for my MB

Thanks!

Hi There,

I don't have an SS3 MB but rather a Strix Z590-A Gaming WiFi 6 with the same drivers.

I don't know if you can help but I hear a low boom sound from my base spkr when I boot & Windows is not very fast to boot. Also sound doesn't react immediately.

I installed drivers 6.3.9600. I don't have a 5 channel sound box.. All I have are 2 good spkrs. I just bought this rig for video work but I would like to have reasonable sound. From what I heard the chip does have good sound.

Thanks for the help. :)

Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound AMD motherboard, so :

You need Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS AMD MB) from the first post of this thread.

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.

If your question is how know the audio type of your ASUS ROG Strix Z590-A Gaming WiFi motherboard, you can see in your motherboard specs (https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z590-a-gaming-wifi-model/spec) :

Note : For information, only ASUS ROG Z590 motherboards use Realtek USB Audio Drivers (UAD), others ASUS motherboards with Intel 5xx series chipsets use Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD).

Thanks for the heads up. I used DDU to uninstall and removed .INF from driver store.

I figured as much about your warning regarding drivers. I was using the UAD drivers on a Z490M and they worked fine. This board is a new ball game.
I told the boys on Station Drivers that these drivers were for USB sound which is not the same at all.

It would be nice if you would share your updated drivers on Station Drivers (i imagine you know them) .
A lot of peeps would appreciate it (At least I do).

One last question, like I mentioned, I don't have a 5ch spkr system, only 2 good spkrs, but I like good sound .

Do I need :
Sonic Studio III
Sonic Radar III (Optional)
Install DTS Sound Unbound

Will any of these packages (if any) will help with my 2 spkr setup for quality sound?

Thanks again. :cool:

OK new problem,

I tried to install Realtek console but got this error

Sorry for the French but it says that windows store ran into a problem.

I rebooted and tried again but no go.

Any suggestions?

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately these drivers have issues. They slow boot times by almost 10 seconds. You can hear a soft boom from bass when they are loading. To check, just remove the drivers (same way as MoKichu's advice). You will see boot times improve. Doing a boot trace closely shows the lagging is sound driver related.

There is absolutely no information on this driver neither from Realtek or any board maker for that matter.
However, the sound is good but not to the detriment of performance. I have opened a ticket.

Waiting for next driver.
