So, earlier today my browser notified me that this feature was available through Nahimic but even though the X570 ACE's audio driver was last updated in April of this year it is still only 3.5.0

I cannot use the Nahimic Companion app to update the driver further (update button here is not operable). Tis a bummer to know that this feature is theoretically possible but as of yet unattainable unless MSI releases a suitable update [ie one that has audio driver (SWC) version 4+].

I tried to reach their CS support about this feature and they informed me that at the moment, all users who is under 4.X.X driver is not ready to use this feature yet.
And depend on each MB or Laptop generation the driver can be update in the future or not or the APO 3 cannot upgrade to APO 4, HRTF is on UWP only . So, I think you should wait for this feature for a while! It's a new update feature so developer will test it on recent driver first then they will develop it on other drivers

Seems to be a new feature, haven't heard of anyone talking about it here. Yes you might have to wait till they release newer driver.

Edit: AlexHunter just said what I want to say haha.

I'm using Windows 11 so UWP incompatibility shouldn't be an issue. Whether or not I "should wait for this feature" is inconsequential. I must wait because MSI have yet to release audio drivers for my platform that enable this feature.

This feature is for nahimic app so if you have nahimic pre-installed on ur device before then I think you can use this in the future
