I recently did a clean install of Windows 10 build 10162 from the official ISO provided to insiders, and I have discovered something with my audio performance that may or may not have been present before.
Whenever I resume from sleep or hibernate, everything appears to be fine except that any music sounds noticeably "slow" as I interact with the UI. This could mean dragging a window, scrolling in a webpage, or even just clicking on some UI element on screen. When this happens, I start to hear faint static, and the tempo of the audio slows down just a bit, as if to indicate high CPU usage. This always corrects itself after I do a full restart.
Sadly, there aren't many drivers available specifically for Windows 10, so I can't easily install new ones. I did install the latest Windows 10 driver for my Intel chipset, however, but that doesn't seem to have done anything. I suspect that it's not my audio driver because the problem persists even when I switch to listening through my USB headphones.
Has anybody run into this issue before? What might be the cause?
