Logged in members of the PCGH community can use the One-Click-Download below. Alternative you can download the driver from the Realtek website. The update is available for Windows Vista and Windows XP and the packages contain the files for the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the operating systems. All Realtek HD audio chips are supported.
The sound specialist still offers the Beta version 0.1 of the 3D Sound Back Utility which preserves or reactivates 3D sound effects such as Surround, reverb and stereoscopic effects of older games under Windows Vista. Since it is a beta version, the use is used at one's own risk only. You should backup your important files before using the software.
Currently the changelog is not available on Realtek's ftp server. We will deliver the information as soon as the file is available.
