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

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!

I've read somewhere the VIA is a pretty good quality codec. Not sure if there's any objective review.

GIGABYTE's global website says VIA 2021 CODEC. No mention of Realtek audio.

The motherboard manual hasn't been updated, it still shows Realtek/VIA HD audio codec.

I like realtek over via for its great driver. So much option where via driver is simple.
