Hmmm which one though? As far as I know in my short life as a PC master race, I have only seen Creative labs core3d chip on some Mobos.

After some research I'm pretty sure all of them support it.

Hmmm nope, I dont think all of the Mobos support Dolby headphone. I dont see that in my Mobo. Im sure its only a few select motherboards. But pretty cool that at least some of them do have it. It would be better if the mobo had optical out and send processed audio to an external DAC/AMP to get better sound quality.

Not all mobos, all realtek built-in soundcards. And they can only output Dolby Headphone through the actual headphone out, not s/pdif

hmmm Im still looking but there was no option on my motherboard for doing that. Even if its a Realtek audio chipset, it is probably based on software than hardware.

 

here is a link where you can install software and it will give you dolby headphone.

Again, it must be for certain motherboards/brands with Dolby software.

 

Edit: This is supposed to install for any realtek audio chipset. Not bad but I do wonder how it will sound depending on the motherboard and which realtek audio chip its using....

It's going to sound mediocre at best, Realtek soundcards aren't really a high quality products.
