Audio quality

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
A question rolleyes.gif

Is there any other difference in system performance besides of greater audio quality if I switch from 48khz to 192khz

I'm a recording engineer, besides of being a gamer tongue.gif

So I DEFINITELY know a difference.

My question if there is a reason to run it at default 48khz., would it cause delays, etc. Anything to take a hit in performance of the PC itself, or doesn't even matter?

No external audio card, just my Asus Sabertooth 990fx Rev 2.0

Hi, i am no audio expert, i have only searched this in relation to films. For registration things may be much different. See if you can have your own opinion by reading this:

If you want a "pro" reply, i suggest your register in hydrogenaud forum and ask there. There are many audio professionists that post in the forum on daily basis and i am sure several will be doing the same job as you.

Well thank you

I'm actually signed up for GearSlutz at least 6 years ago, it's not really a matter of whether I hear a difference or not, because I do for sure.

I'm asking more if it slows down a system in any way.

Considering the games have audio in higher quality above 48000 mhz just like DVDs have better audio quality at 96khz if I remember correctly. And BluRay is at 192 khz, but if you have it at 48khz it down samples to that rate, which can create artifacts.


It was more of the question of computer performance, rather than ability to hear it

if you interface with any digital outboard gear, like a digital mixer, you MAY have to ensure that both your pc and the device(s) are both capable of 192mbps, and you may have to set one device as the timing master device.

the impact on your computers performance between 48k and 192k will not be noticeable if you have a half decent machine. a 192k audio file will take up more room in your ram, but it would take a VERY long audio file, or dozens upon dozens of shorter tracks to fill the average today of 4 to 8 gigs of ram. the processing of the audio is largely outsourced to the sound card, so the cpu will barely notice the difference, again, unless you were working with over a hundred tracks simultaneously...
