[VR-ZONE] Creatives Quad Core Sound Card - Page 9

post #81 of 140
For people that don't really like DSPs or audio processing, this is practically pointless. TBH i am not sure what you would be looking for by buying it. Just seems pretty meh.

That and the fact that creative sound products have been making me want to walk in front of a bus since like 1999.

Quad Core Sound Cards, I need to get one of these! Nah, I'm just kidding.
What exactly is alot better on discrete sound devices?
Aren't motherboard's integrated sound cards good enough?
I'm sorry, I'm not a sound-guru.

Did they state in the article that there is only one sound card maker left?

What about Auzentech, HT Omega, M-Audio, Turtle Beach (and of course Asus although technically not just a sound card maker)?

Agreed, love my Asus Xonar in my sig rig and my Sennheiser headset. Even the stock Realtek on my new Asus mobo sounds clear and crisp. I actually unistalled creative's sound stuff off my new rig cause it just was over complicated.

As has been mentioned, they were most likely referring to companies that existed back in the heyday of sound cards. Now, I believe Creative is the only company left from that time. Also, many contemporary sound card manufacturers still use Creative chips (most notably from that list, Auzentech).

All in all, it seems more like they are just combining the different processors they were using into one die. I'd agree it is probably for marketing but I doubt it is 'bad news' in any way.

Standard motherboard soundcards of today have no actual audio processing chip, so all the work is done in emulation by your processor. Dedicated soundcards have dedicated audio processing chips, so they not only sound better and produce higher quality audio signals, but also offload the processing that the CPU would do normally.
