Solved Which audio chip it is? Tags: Gigabyte Chip Realtek Audio Motherboards Last response: September 3, 2012 7:35 PM in Motherboards Share mubin Motherboard Authority September 2, 2012 7:40:48 PM Hi all, The audio chip in this board is confusing me. http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3... It has Realtek/VIA codec. What does that mean? Mixed? How will be its quality? I don't get it.

Do not worry, ANNO 2012 and pretty much all onboard Audio from Realtek or Via is perfectly good for every day use The only time you will worry is if you invest as much into Audio equipment as you do your tower! | Report abuse Reply to Anonymous proton007 September 3, 2012 1:42:18 AM I've read somewhere the VIA is a pretty good quality codec. Not sure if there's any objective review. | Report abuse Reply to proton007 Best solution ko888 Motherboard Master September 3, 2012 2:46:52 PM GIGABYTE's global website says VIA 2021 CODEC. No mention of Realtek audio. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=... The motherboard manual hasn't been updated, it still shows Realtek/VIA HD audio codec. | Report abuse Reply to ko888 mubin Motherboard Authority September 3, 2012 7:34:20 PM I like realtek over via for its great driver. So much option where via driver is simple. | Report abuse Reply to mubin mubin Motherboard Authority September 3, 2012 7:35:07 PM Best answer selected by mubin. | Report abuse Reply to mubin Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Which audio chip it is?> Related ressources: ForumDoes ati radeon hd 5670 have audio chip ForumASRock Extreme3 Gen 3 Audio Chip ForumNo audio anymore on P7P55D with VIA HD Audio chip ForumWhat kind of REALTEK audio chip in the HD 5870 video card?
