GPU audio. HELP!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a quick question to ask.

How does GPU generated sound compare to audio from a Maximums VI Formula

Or does GPU sound just act a pass through for the motherboards audio?

Thanks.
Help appreciated.

Here's the fun part. Using HDMI into a stereo receiver will dominate whatever sound card you can buy. HDMI can send the sound uncompressed to the receiver to do all the work. Then you have 100 times better speaker selection than the garbage you typically get stuck with off of sound cards.

Here's a link to get it working smile.gif

Great advice thanks.

So how would it compare to using an optical cable then sending it to a receiver through the mobo.
Same, better or worse?
Thanks for the advice.

HDMI > Optical if you have the option

Optical is allot easier to mess with especially with games. I honestly did both and you really don't hear a difference. Blue ray movies I could hear a little difference but games, not at all.
