    No release notes can be found, however, users of Realtek NICs will want to consider making this upgrade.

    Similar to the latest Realtek Semiconductor Hi-Definition Audio Codec update, Realtek has also come out with newer network interface card (NIC) drivers for your Realtek-compatible LAN cards. These cards are often built-in on Gigabyte and Asus motherboards, so check Device Manager and your system specs before upgrade.

    The driver was issued 2012/5/22 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. There is a noticeable performance improvement between these drivers, and the Microsoft compatibility drivers from 2009.

    Realtek Network Interface Card (NIC) Drivers - for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 v7.058 2012-5-22

    Typically, unified drivers are released to add support for new hardware, while also patching issues for existing devices. The drivers require a manual update using Device Manager as explained in the YouTube video above. Good luck with this upgrade!
