It's really just good business. They're basically following the lead that the GPU manufacturers established years ago.

Make one basic product (GPU, APU), then allow other companies to manufacture other products based on the original basic design. They get their money through licensing fees and the privilege to use the basic product design.

The big mistake, though, is instigating a huge backlash from the consumer community by cutting off one of the rare sources for improved performance. This is the real reason why Creative is being criticized all over the place the last couple of days.

Well I for one have never supported a product but I have always been a fan of saving money.

Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series on the Egg with $50 MIR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102005

Honestly I would hate to see them go because I mean who else is there for quality sound (drivers excluded)

Auzentech, M-Audio, E-mu, ESI, ASUS, those all have cards which have better sound quality then Creative's cards. (of the shelf, not talking about modded ones)

I think the key detail here is that X-Fi is an APU (Audio Processing Unit), just like G92 is a GPU.

Who else is there for quality sound? As an alternative to explore, try C-Media's CMI8788.
