About two weeks ago we reported that Realtek offers the [url=]HD 2.16 audio driver for download[/url]. Now there is an update for the AC97 Audio Codec available. Unfortunately the package doesn't contain a serial number, readme file or Change Log so we have to assume that it is a experimental or beta driver. Logged in members of the PCGH community can download the below. Alternatively you can also visit realtek.com.tw and download the package from the Realtek website.
