    If you're not having any problems with the driver you have now, there is no reason to update. The fixes are for specific problems or for newer games. Also (this is for anyone who cares) if you run your sound through HDMI like me, it doesn't matter, the sound goes through the video card/integrated graphics.

    After installing and rebooting it always asks me if I want to run the same 2-3 files when launching Windows. Since I wasnt experiencing any audio issues, I'm going to roll back to previous version.
