Asus ROG Maximus VIII Ranger Sounddriver

Hello Folks,

I would switch to Ubuntu 16.04, but my soundcard “realtek” didn´t work. So i switched back to windows 8.1.
With the new Version 16.10 is there new soundcard drivers out there? And how can i find out?

I rly love Linux, for vim for gcc. It´s great to work with languages like c or c++ in linux.
But without sound, not so much…


You could “Try Ubuntu” from a live 16.04 usb and test your sound card. Just a thought … In most cases, I try the live version, make sure that audio, video, new features, etc work and then proceed with an install.
