Which X-FI have X-Ram? - Page 4

post #31 of 40
Alright I'm finished investigating this. Results:

X-FI XtremeMusic - Hynix chip = 2MB XRAM. Samsung chip = 2MB XRAM.
Nothing to unlock, because the chip is physically 2MB.

2x512k Dual Bank Chips, 16bit SDRam.
2x512k=1024(1MB) x 2 (dual bank) = 2MB.

So does it run at the same speed as the 64MB XRAM?
Very nice!

If someone takes the numbers off a fatal1ty chip I will confirm it, but I do believe so.

I also noticed the chip is placed on a different set of contacts. You can see it in the pics posted.

It doesn't make any difference sound wise as its only function is to take the sound processing load of the cpu when you are playing game. Usually, when we play games or music, the sound is stored on computer memory. What the Fatal1ty card does, is it stores the sound on the ram itself instead of your computer for more efficient processing (direct processing by the x-fi processor).

I think Ill save the 150 and use it on something more productive, like a new wireless mouse and one of those cool fingerprint password manager things from wal-mart...


its all about the fingerprint readers!

I bought the X-Fi XM and 1 gig of ram (from onboard and 512) ,I think the extra 512 will cover any audio that will use up 62 mb.

I dont think it needs 64MB for audio processing. You can fit all or most of an MP3 song onto 2MB.
Very nice!

Hi I've just read this forum with great interest as I am waiting myself for the delivery of an X-FI Platinum from creative, I have used creative sound products a lot over the years for music creation and in my experience have always found a curtain line in creative sound cards i.e Live or Audigy to be pretty much the same no mater weather you buy the cheaper version or the higher priced version, the only difference has been with accessories i.e drive bays etc.
Although I must say I am a little worried about this one, I did not want the elite pro because I didn't fancy an external box, so being a musician and finding a useful need for the drive bay I was left to decide between the fatality and the platinum, Thinking as I have previously said I went for the platinum.
But know I am thinking about that little black box in the bloody corner what the hell is it, will it give me better performance with all my processor hungry audio program or is it just an empty little box to get people LIKE ME! thinking they need to buy that one.
