See, I don't mind the traditional RT setup but I do like what you showed me and strangely enough Nahimic 3 is supposed to only be for an Intel CPU too.
I wonder if those drivers would work for my board? I do not know what my subsys is supposed to be on this board though but I would love to have the old, or the one you showed, interface back and stop all of this nonsense they are currently doing. Seriously, it makes me lone for the days of the PCI soundcards again and I may end up going that route if this Realtek nonsense doesn't stop.
Edit: When I see
8555_FF01 with FMAPO
8555_FF03 with Nahimic
8555_FF04 with CXAPO
8555_FF06 with MaxxAudio
8555_FF10 with Creative
8555_FF0C with DTS/SST
what file am I modifying to convert to? My 8555_FF00_PG468_Win10_RS1_RS2_RS3_RS4_Win7_WHQL_DOLBY may say FF00 but it is not generic and has something in it that makes the UI ask for Nahimic for the EQ and stuff but I know for a fact that a real generic doesn't ask that since the H97 version of the driver worked and was the plain Jane (though it did say MSI but was so old).
Speaking of Gigabyte, I have a GA-78LMT-USB3 R2 board (which has USB 3.1 ports, not USB 3.0) which has the HWID "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0892&SUBSYS_1458A182" and using Realtek UAD drivers, not the traditional Realtek HDA drivers. All my other old PCs that have Realtek audio chipsets will use the HDA nonUAD drivers.
Realtek had been quietly developing specialized UAD drivers like this one & this one that contain Nahimic 3 integration files & will support new Gigabyte boards & laptops, though the ID for my board is listed in the HDXGigabyte.INF file of the UAD drivers, the ID is not listed in the a-volute extension INF & HDX_GigabyteEXT_AVO_RTK.inf files. no matter as I can add my HWID onto those extension INFs & disabling driver signature enforcement, then installing the UAD drivers with the edited/modded extension INF files, and thus I get both Realtek Audio console environment & EQ options along with using Nahimic 3 enhancements simultaneously like in the pic from the following link:
ah forget about it, waitandhope123 - there's a new 8558 UAD with Nahimic 3 driver that just came out today - downloading this one myself.
though I'm using specialized UAD drivers on my Gigabyte board that do have Nahimic 3 support. just need to copy the Nahimic 3 software component files onto the 8558 UAD driver pack and then install them onto that board.
I'm not upgrading to Win10 v1809 on the custom built PC with the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 R2 board yet and will stay with the 1803 release - Microsoft truly pushed out the 1809 release prematurely.
on another note: ASRock has posted their version of the 8549 UAD driver for FM2A68M-HD+/FM2A68M-DG3+ motherboards
