    OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit 1709/RS3/16299.x or more recent (20xx/VB/1904x.x or more recent for some Third Party drivers).
    Hardware requirements : ASUS ROG/TUF notebooks/desktops with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx series chipsets or AMD Ryzen Mobile chipsets.

    Note : In order to know which drivers package to use, match the audio specifications of your notebook/desktop 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_util_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

    If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
    Disable Fast Startup or totally disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

    Hi, thanks for your reply (and sorry for my late one due to personal reasons).
    Yes I have cleaned up the drivers pretty well and went through the process myself to verify there isn't any trace of the old drivers, yet it still crashes my system every time i tried to install it. I even used DDU as a last resort to nuke everything and make sure that it really cleaned everything, yet the driver still causes a BSOD. Apparently it isn't a conflict issue but an incompatibility issue, i have had these in the past when i tried to install modded drivers that just didn't work with my system. Seems like this release isn't really compatible with my laptop after all, i'll just stick to 8931 (it is a good driver version)
    About windows update, i have disabled automatic updates and blocked driver updates for good, and i always cut off the connection completely before even uninstalling the driver yet still the same BSOD when installing the new one. I also would like to add that when i installed it manually without the bat file i have found that the HDXASUS.inf file is the culprit, which is the inf the file that copies the RTKVHD64.sys that causes the BSOD in the first place.

    Sadly 8959.1 still refuses to work on my machine but on the bright side the new Nahimic software component works with 8945.1 and it is quite a nice upgrade, the soundstage is noticeably wider. Thanks!

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. Sadly this version also crashes on my laptop with the same file RTKVHD64.sys always causing the BSOD.

    likewise. Followed all the directions and got a bsod for the same file on my GU502GV laptop. Been trying to repair windows for awhile but might just try reset pc or format as I think it will be faster lol. Figured I’d try this since I lost audio on build 2004 of win10 with the official driver from Asus.*
