Solved Which audio chip it is? Tags: Gigabyte Chip Realtek Audio Motherboards Last response: September 3, 2012 7:35 PM in Motherboards Share mubin a b V Motherboard 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. Thanks More about : audio chip Anonymous September 2, 2012 8:25:41 PM It will have Either/Or Via or realtek, luck of the draw! 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! m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources which audio chip is better - Forum Which chip-set is best for a home media server? - Forum What different mobo audio chip between Creative® Sound Core 3D and Realtek ALC 1150? - Forum Upgrading from Phenom 965 BE -- Which chip? - Forum Faulty audio chip - Forum Can't find your answer ?
