I have Realtek HDA 6.0.1.8186 currently installed, dated 2017.
ID hardware: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEC_0885&SUBSYS_18491890
Motherboard manual quotes this details: "ALC890 Audio Codec"

So which is the latest driver I could try? Sometimes I am experiencing audio stuttering with realtime audio streaming.
Thank you.

Thank you.
does this audio problem occur sometimes (intermittent or occasional) or is it most frequent (aka. persistent)?

use programs such as DPC Latency checker or LatencyMon to diagnose.

the audio popping/stuttering problem is actually a complex problem that has many different causes (and many possible solutions)
I don't know if using either an old or a new Realtek audio driver will make any difference.
also I'm not sure if even a faster CPU will help (the fastest CPU for your ASRock P55 deluxe board might be an Intel i7-875K cpu which can be overclocked) or whether to use older or newer graphics drivers for that nVidia NVS 300 graphics device.
maybe even max out on RAM (the max amount of RAM for ASRock P55 deluxe is 16Gb)
temporarily disable any antivirus real-time monitoring features may help - also removing certain non-essential apps loading at startup might also work

it's gonna be a trial & error effort to solve that audio popping/stuttering problem.

by the way, there's a 6.0.8899.1 FF00 Realtek HDA driver available that works on Win8.1 {download link to github repo recently removed March 2020 due to a recent DMCA notice - recently now pointing to an alternate link}.
