As a logged in member of the PCGH community you can use the One-Click-Download below to download the new driver. Alternatively you can visit the official Realtek website and download the HD 2.39 audio driver there. The new drivers are available for the 32 and 64 bit versions Windows 7 and Vista as well as Windows XP. All Realtek audio chips, like they are common on motherboards and in notebooks, 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.
As usual for the Changelog of the Realtek HD audio drivers, the latest version doesn't offer more information on the adjustments than a plain "Customizations”.
