Asus X570-F and audio drivers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I helped my friend build his computer today. He got an Asus rog strix x570-F which audio wise is the same as my x470-F. So when I downloaded the audio driver to get the realtek audio console, the equaliser was missing. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and it wasn't there again. I even downloaded the previous version and it still wasn't there. With my x470-F there is an equaliser and without it the audio sounds like complete garbage. However, my version of the realtek audio console is about a year older. Any clues or ideas on how to miraculously make the equaliser appear?

Just wait, after installing the driver on a fresh install the equalizer never shows up. It will show up after around 24 hours and a few reboots,

 

In case you think I'm talking nonsense, check out what board I have in my sig ;)

Wait, the huge old driver model or the new UAD driver package? For the UAD driver, one needs the Realtek Audio Console app from the store https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/realtek-audio-control/9p2b8mcsvpln?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

This is the description of the driver that is installed from https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-x570-f-gaming-model/HelpDesk_Download :
Version 6.0.8751.1
2019/08/22 197.49 MBytes

Realtek Audio Driver
Install Realtek Audio Driver.

 

So iv'e got no idea if its the huge old driver model or the new UAD driver package. Maybe you do?

Its a standard Windows driver.

 

When you install the driver it will come with no audio control panel software. Windows will automatically pull the Realtek Audio Console from the Windows 10 store which is a UWP application and will be in the systems start menu. This utility is used to control the sound card but as I said, when you run the utility on a clean install the only option available is volume control. After a few hours when you open the console and click on the device you want to control you will see a volume slider, left & right balance, an equalizer, amplification control and a sample rate setting. There's also an option to disable all effects plus a readout for the capacitance level of your Speakers/Headset.

 

That's how its always worked for me. I have no idea why the settings don't show in full for a few hours, the only explanation I can come up with is because its a universal utility so it has to detect the CODEC used and pull some additional files but that's just a guess.
