    HD Audio service running at 20% all the time?

    Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this? My G750jx shows the HD Audio SERVICE running at 20% all the time... And yes, latest drivers etc are installed...
    Take it light....

    Pretty weird, it doesn't show any CPU usage during Hulu+ playback with Multimedia processing and Loudness equalization checked in Realtek HD. 5% CPU usage overall during playback:

    I will try a couple of other playback modes, and see if I can see if there is any difference.

    So, that 20% utilization during idle looks like atypical behavior.

    When you open the Playback devices dialog, do you see any audio throughput on any devices, green bars going up and down? Maybe some kind of processing is going on but not coming out of the speakers?

    Malakie, what version of Realtek are you running? Are you on Windows 8 or 8.1?

    Here is the newest Asus ready Realtek driver I know of, .7040
    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...l=1#post318262

    adamseyes, do you have a link to a newer version?

    192k is available on some of my devices, but not on the speakers... locked to 48k, Malakie what is your audio format set to?

    a .7086 was released. It uses the latest realtek (2.72) codecs that brings various of improvements but with ASUS tweaks included for Windows 8.1. This one enables 192k for all Modes, including speakers ;D

    here is the link direct download Realtek 6.0.1.7083 (W8.1):
    http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...VER6017083.zip

    or here
    http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...&m=Audio&os=30

    Only download the 6.0.1.XXXX latest driver. do not install any different Numeric ID. they will lead to issues.
    Although be aware that some versions will tend to be released with a lower or older version 6.0.1.XXXX but yet are listed on the latest drivers or newer ones, if that's the case, don't bother downloading them. they usually are bad as well. So the purest and the one that actually works is 7083 as of now

    Thanks Adamseye, .7083 from the first link installed, and gave me new options for my BT headphones:

    Been missing those options since Windows 7

    The 2nd link took me to a promising place, but when I clicked the drop down menu for Windws 8.1 64/32bit it took me here:
    http://support.asus.com/error.aspx?a.../Download.aspx

    Probably a website issue, or Asus is working on website changes...

    I am noticing some typing lag, but it might be unrelated... I dropped down to just the Loudness option and the lag seems gone, I will watch it / use it for a while before recommending it.

    The typing lag was still there this morning, and while watching Hulu+ I was getting lip sync lag... it might be my particular use/setup, but I downgraded to .7040 and the lag(s) are gone...

    BTW, I downloaded .7040 and used the Asus installer and this time it worked, because I am now on Windows 8.1, so the installer was happy.

    100% audio out, cause I control the volume on the headset - Bluetooth COD Ghosts Phantom (Turtlebeach) headset. But I had it on 50% too... it came up that way and had the lag immediately after installing - as I was typing my response yesterday I was getting 1-2 words ahead of the screen

    ah well that sucks D; hopefully if they release a other version, it should fix it up ;D

    i'm using Vulcan pro atm, didn't got any effect as described above. Btw tonight, if possible i'll do a 3DMark along with pics of my voltage and clocks of maybe ill try 1200. I haven't really bothered to go above that. and reason im taking a long time is because I have to reflash and redownload 3dmark haha
