What is Realtek I2S Audio?

This software package contains the required software and driver to connect the Realtek device to the PC.

Overview

Realtek I2S Audio is a software program developed by Realtek Semiconductor. The most common release is 6.2.9600.4055, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named rti2supd.exe. The setup package generally installs about 75 files and is usually about 14.74 MB (15,452,290 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 8 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 50% of users of Realtek I2S Audio come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Italy.
