several days late on this but

6.0.8924.1 HDA FF01 X86/32bit & X64/64bit available from MS Update Catalog (posted 5/23/2020)
Microsoft Update Catalog

[direct cab download link to 8924 FF01 HDA 64bit - 149.4Mb]
[direct cab download link to 8924 FF01 HDA 32bit - 88.8Mb]

now users with Realtek HD audio can choose to either download a generic 8924 FF00 or FF01 version as MS has both FF00 & FF01 versions available from MUC

FF01 version mostly benefits most Lenovo & some HP brand computers
FF01 > Fortemedia integration or FMAPO

6.0.9000.1 HDA FF00 x86/32bit "generic" driver from MS Update Catalog (86.9Mb cab download) [posted 10/11/2020]

WHQL for 32bit Windows from Win7 to Win10

Important note: this is a 32bit only version, not a 64bit version - Realtek did not give Microsoft the 64bit (x64) version of 9000.1 HDA FF00 to Microsoft (at least not yet)

6.0.8988.1 HDA FF01 X64/64bit generic from MS Update Catalog (148.5mb cab download) [posted 10/23/2020]

unlike the generic 8988 FF00 x64 package which was WHQL for Win10 x64 only, generic 8988 FF01 x64 package is WHQL for Win7 x64 & Win10 x64 [because they were digitally signed on different dates and have different WHQL certifications for different Windows versions]

8988 FF01 (not FF00) x64 will install on 64bit Win8.x w/out any problems

I installed version 6.0.8934.1 in all of my Dell OptiPlex 9020 mini-towers which have Realtek ALC3220 HD Audio. The sound from the integrated monitor speakers still works fine in Windows 7 and Windows 10.

which FFxx version of 6.0.8934.1 HDA ? FF01 or FF04

---------------------
from my recent post in Seven forums:

due to very few new HDA driver releases this year 2020, there is a 6.0.9024.1 HDA FF00 beta driver from Station Drivers available (digitally signed by Realtek, not by MS - so it's non-WHQL)
