Drivers for the Asus M4A79XTD EVO motherboard

On their support site, Asus provide drivers for their products. The problem is, those are often outdated. For instance I recently discovered that for the M4A79XTD EVO, the Ethernet controller driver currently available was almost one year older than the current version. In this particular case, this was a Windows 7 driver so old that it was older than the OS itself… So, here is a list of links to the components manufacturers driver websites:

  • Ethernet/LAN: Realtek RTL8111C
  • Audio: VIA VT1828S/VT2020 (I haven’t found anything newer than what’s on Asus’s page yet)
  • AMD chipset: SB750 South Bridge. This is actually just listed as “South Bridge drivers”, and then it links to some Catalyst stuff… I’m not really sure this is the good stuff (and I didn’t test it), but I found nothing else.
  • SATA: Marvell 61xx SATA Driver (beware, this is for another mobo and I didn’t test it – I guess it should work because it seems that it’s the same SATA controller)

I’ll keep updating if I found more and/or newer ones.
