Currently using 188.8.131.5229 (the last release by Asus for this board). In a game I was having stutter issues and whatever it's called where it's like there's too many sounds for it to handle and it sounds like your headphones are going to break. Now to be clear the game is Arkham Knight and the pc port weren't that great so it could just be that title. But it got me checking my audio driver regardless. From Realteks site I find myself HERE which appears to offer a newer driver R2.82 184.108.40.20686 from 2017/07/26. But looking around I see people using drivers as recent as 220.127.116.1162 which only seem to be available from 3rd party sites? Which driver version should I be using? Realtek suggests sticking with the Asus release (my current driver) as it could be a tweaked version specifically for the board for optimum performance. Are the latest drivers only good for more recent chipsets? Should I just try it?
