ASUS P5B Windows 7 Audio Drivers

The latest drivers I could find for the AD 1988 audio chipset work great under Windows 7 (x64). ASUS hasn't updated their website in ages but there are much newer drivers available. 6.10.02.6520 worked the best for me. The stock Windows 7 drivers do work, but there's no bass crossover management if you're doing 6 channel out to a receiver. 6.10.02.6520 corrected the issue.

Download 6.10.02.6520 here

When installing use the following executable, the DTS drivers do not work well.
SoundMAX_Audio_V51016520_V61016520\NON_DTS\Vista\setup.exe


See http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/adi-soundmax-1986-88-a-b-xonar-t71280.html for a full list of available AD 1988 drivers.

Thanks, thanks and again thanks. There aren't drivers for PB5 and windows 7 (x64), and you got it. Thanks. Works fine.

thank you very much. i really appreciate it.

the official driver from asus for p5b-deluxe wifi/ap didn't work quite well, especially the clicking folders sound and so on with windows 7 rc. also, the sound on leadtek tv2000xp expert tv tuner often shutted off and on in random cases. it's been annoying.

i'm gonna try this one out. hope it will solve my problems.
