Question about Windows 10 update 2004

So It's October and my 2004 update is still on hold.
I did some digging and figured there are some blue screen issues with systems that use Conexant chips.
Here's the thing tho; Microsoft specifically says if you have drivers "Conexant ISST" or "Conexant HDAudio Driver", you will face these issues.
Mine however says "Conexant SmartAudio HD".
Is it the same thing or am I missing something here?

Edit: I also checked the mentioned file versions and names and don't have a single one of those on my driver.

    Hi anonymous user-0325,

    It does not appear to be the same, as Microsoft specifically mentioned Conexant ISST or Conexant HDAudio Driver with specific versions listed over here:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-2004

    Have you tried updating to Windows 10 version 2004? If you have and you're still blocked, you could try updating the driver from the Microsoft Catalog:
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=Conexant+SmartAudio

    In worst case scenario you could uninstall the driver completely and try updating.

    I might try to install it manually.
    I was mostly worried about something fatal happening and maybe losing some data.
    Since the update has been on hold for quite some time, I'm losing hope for a standard release by Microsoft.
