I doubt Realtek would be producing drivers for either Creative or Asus as they're in competition but having the Asus link was a good suggestion non the less.

Creative Sound Blaster Z-Series Driver v13.1.00.28

Enter the current Z class of soundcards. From what we have been able to gleen, the new Z series is CL's push to gain the top spot again or at least gather the lions share. Needless to say in the Guru3D Audio Lab, we were quite interested to get a look and listen at their latest flagship product, the SoundBlaster ZXR.

This download supports and is applicable for the following models:

  • Sound Blaster Z (SB1500, SB1502)
  • Sound Blaster Zx (SB1506)
