High Definition Audio refers to the high-definition audio standard announced in 2004. It refers to unifying standards for audio delivery and enabling playback of more channels than the previous AC97 integrated audio codec. The HD audio standard allows playback of up to 8 channels at 96kHz/32bit with a quality of 192kHz/32bit. Intel High Definition Audio Controller is supported not only in the Windows operating system, but also in Linux, FreeBSD, and MacOS. Also, when you cannot hear the music that you heard well until yesterday while using the computer, there may be a conflict with the audio driver, so please take a look. Even if the driver is not properly installed, crashes or computer stuttering may occur.
