      Comparing a firmware audio bug with hardware security vulnerabilities, Nice !

        Definitely an apples and oranges comparison there.

        AMD has a storied history with broken USB hardware on their motherboards. Notably, they have released server class motherboards with USB so broken they had to bundle 3rd party add-on boards to make up for it. Without digging deeper, I'm unfamiliar with Intel's efforts, but considering the state of USB hardware in general, I wouldn't be surprised if there were a number of skeletons on Intel's side of the fence either.

        That doesn't excuse either AMD nor Intel, just adding this is kinda par-for-the-course with USB anything. The amount of workarounds in the Linux USB stack for broken or otherwise non-compliant hardware is rather staggering.

          On Asus motherboards (String and Zenith II series) audio SPDIF is also problematic on Windows. On other brands it's ok.
          That "ROG SupremeFX 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC S1220" using SPDIF causes audio to fail after some time with some strange issues (audio cracklings, delays etc.). Didn't tested it after 2 latest BIOS updates (and Windows) so maybe now it's resolved.
          Line out works fine thought on both Linux and Windows.

          So it's not only Linux that's affected by audio issues.

          There is also SATA performance issue, but that's another story.
          So after this what's left to be taken care of is 'rcraid' (with apparently only I on the surface of the planet use on TRx4 @@) and Linux will nicely support TRx4 platforms out of the box !

            Use an external DAC? Same issues?

              Dunno about that, I'm not "sound guy". Used optical just because upgraded to new speakers and wanted to "test it out". Also I don't have external DAC.
              For audiophile (or any sound related job) such product (String and Zenith II Extreme lineup from Asus) are DOA. To me also as this product is not functioning properly and yet this didn't stopped Asus from charging me extra.

              Contacted Asus, first time they didn't responded (well I did got response in a line of a "I don't know, will forward to technical team" and never heard from them back) second time they wrote straight away that they are working on fix. This all of course for Windows.
