If I understand well, the HDA core is built in chipset e.g. intel or nvidia and it interface the external codec via I2S or similar bus that can be supplied from different manufacturers. My gigabyte MB uses Realtek ALC888 also chips from Analog Devices are common but it doesn't matter from programmers point of view. Important is the HDA core in chipset.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
