Realtek Alc1220 Audio Codec Driver

Download Realtek HD Audio 2.82 Driver for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 x86/x64. Realtek has released its 2.82 HD Audio driver compatible with Microsoft’s. FYI, the R2.82 general drivers are version (dated 6/14/2017) from the Realtek web site. The ASUS P6T board using ALC1200 does not have or list any official win10 compatible drivers but 8186 should be ok.

Realtek Alc1220 Audio Codec DriverDuring the last throes of the PUF somebody raised the question whether there was a native ASIO driver for Windows Laptops/Notebooks that use Realtek HD Audio Codecs under Windows. He managed to find one for his particular computer which led me to digging around for a bit of further investigation.
Well after a bit of digging around I did indeed find that some MB manufactures do supply a little seperate installer for ASIO that doesn't get installed along with the main Windows Audio drivers, and what I also found is that where this seperate install is included it always contains the same dll driver. So first off check your machines audio driver setup to see if this is already included and install that if you want to use it.
Failing that I've put together a zip file to install the required dll manually which you can download here.
We all know that the ideal solution would be to equip yourself with a decent audio interface but if you want to noodle out some arrangement on the train while you've got a pair of earbuds and nothing more at hand, what then? There is the ubiquitous and rather lovely ASIO4ALL available for the same task, which has the added advantage of being able to aggregate your Windows Audio driver so you can use more than one app at a time, but I often hear people talking about having issues with that or not being able to get the audio latency down to an acceptable level. So if you are one of those people you may (or may not) find this Realtek developed, albeit unsupported, native driver useful.
Anyhow here it is.

Not only is AORUS Audio awesome for gaming, it’s also perfect for users who enjoy watching movies or producing music on their PCs. AORUS implements an array of audio technologies to bolster the audio experience of our motherboards to audiophile level quality. Technologies such as an ALC 1220VB audio codec, high-end capacitors, ESS SABRE DAC, are reasons why AORUS Audio provides an audio experience like no other boards out there. Let’s take a look at these various audio technologies and how they contribute to producing crisp, crystal-clear audio quality!

ALC 1220VB Audio Codec

ALC1220-VB with 120dB SNR HD Audio brings to the table crystal, clear audio quality. The improvement in audio performance compared to previous generations is especially noticeable from the front-line output. Better noise levels, dynamic range, and THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) for the front-line audio makes ALC1220-VB one of the best in the sound game. Communicate with your teammates clearly so that you guys can ace the enemy and avoid any communication mishaps that may occur from poor audio quality. If you enjoy streaming and are striving to be the next streamer icon, the awesome audio clarity helps you broadcast your voice more clearly. Smart Headphone Amp auto-detects impedance on your head-worn audio devices to prevent annoying issues such as low-volume or distortion and provides optimal high-fidelity audio so you can listen to music the way your favorite artists intended for it to be listened.

High-End Capacitors

To enhance the nuances of the onboard audio quality by providing richer, deeper bass along with clearer high frequency sound, WIMA and Nichicon capacitors are integrated on AORUS motherboards. These are the type of capacitors that can be found in high grade audio equipment so it’s only appropriate that they are also implemented on AORUS boards to truly bring that professional sound quality that audiophiles are accustomed to enjoying.


ESS SABRE DAC is top-of-the-line audio technology that elevates your audio performance to the next level. Usually found on audiophile devices, the integration of ESS SABRE DAC on select motherboards such as the Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 shows that the audio on these boards are built to satisfy even the most hardcore audiophiles. For those of you who have attended a live concert or symphony performance, you’re going to love this technology. ESS SABRE DAC takes the sound environment of a concert and integrates it into your motherboard. Sure concerts are amazing fun but if you are craving those concert vibes and trying to avoid rubbing elbows with sweaty concertgoers yelling at the top of their lungs in a claustrophobic environment, ESS SABRE DAC brings that concert level audio experience to your PC!
