VIA drivers for Windows 10

Is there a chance somebody knows when and even if such drivers will be reliesed? most of the H77 and some Z77 have the VIA VT2021 audio codec and the w10 built in drivers are not really that working ,no jack detection for example.
Didn't try w8 drivers i think they will break things even more.

If your sound works, be happy.  I wouldn't hold my breath for an OEM full featured audio driver for this chipset (presence detect, etc.).  If VIA was going to do it, they probably would have done so by now.

Gigabyte, slim chance getting one from them too.  I doubt they are putting much R&D into driver development for this chip.  Hope I'm wrong, but if you have sound under the OS, this is probably what you're going to get.   

You can try the 8 drivers as you mentioned  :-\

Well at first I tried to just install the driver from the W8.1 zip (gigabyte's drivers for W8.1 are newer than the  VIA ones  as there was this bios updated that stated you have to update your audio drivers) and got BSOD , so windows reverted back to  its newer built in drivers , so I decided to install the full driver pack , windows still uses its own version but it seems that this with via's control panel at least I have jack detection working which was the biggest problem before.
