My PC came with A-Volute Nh3 Audio Effects Component (Nahimic 3 APO) included.
Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade this to the newer Nahimic 4?

No one has found a way, apparently. My MSI X570 GODLIKE came with APO3, and when I tried to manually force newer drivers with APO4 they flat out did not work. MSI only has 9057 drivers available on their website, and I've found that Windows 11 installs good enough drivers that work well with Atmos / DTS:X on my headphones, so I stopped trying to install the RealTek and Nahimic stuff after my last 2 clean installs.

When Mokichu was still psoting, IIRC, there was a small discussion about it in which someone said, something along the lines of "no, if your syustem came with APO3 you're locked into APO3" or something like that. I cannot prove otherwise because the couple of times I tried it never worked.
