Since Realtek is rolling out one new HD Audio driver version after another, today it’s time for its 22.214.171.12467 update, which I assume could include small stability, performance, and sound quality improvements.
In terms of compatibility, this package is suitable for both 32- and 64-bit variants of Microsoft’s Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 operating systems. However, since different OSes might also seem valid at first, installing Realtek’s update on other OSes isn’t recommended and should not be performed.
Therefore, to find out what the changes are, save and unzip the downloadable archive to an accessible location on your computer (such as on the desktop) and locate the available setup file from within the newly created folder.
Afterwards, you will need to close all programs and processes that might interfere with the upgrade, run the available setup.exe file, and follow all instructions displayed on-screen.
Finally, don’t forget to give the wizard permission to perform a system reboot. If this task isn’t requested automatically, it would be a good idea to carry it out manually; this allows changes to take effect properly.
In other words,, follow all instructions highlighted above to properly install the new version, and constantly check our website in order to stay up to speed with the latest releases.
