Hell yea man. I'm still rocking a 7 year old Sound blaster STX biggrin.gif

The 50% FPS boost only starts when using red lights biggrin.gif .

I always used Creative sound cards (SB Live!, Audigy 2 ZS, X-Fi Extreme Music, Auzentech X-Fi Prelude) during the XP and Vista days but went for external DAC/amps recently wink.gif .

This seems to be similar to the Asus Sonic Radar.
it just allow you to visualize the audio from the game, it's not dirty, it gives more choice to the consumer thumb.gif

I'd be interested to try it if it had a 1/4 headphone jack and L/R RCA's like the ZxR does. Ibe been rocking that card for the last few years. Never one issue and sounds great using analog.

Bass is my business and business is good!

This.
I am hoping that AMD's TrueAudio Next... will take over this, once Radeon software is on Xbox games and PC's more.
