Can someone help me make sense of this? I have an Asus Strix B450 itx board. The spec sheet says
ROG SupremeFX 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC S1220A
Industry-leading 8-channel HD audio with the ROG exclusive SupremeFX S1220A driven by Japanese capacitors
The back of the board only has the three basic 3.5mm plugs; line in, line out, and mic.
It would seem odd to put a chip that had 8 channel capability, and even advertise it, but not be able to use it. I don't think its referring to audio over HDMI is it?
I have seen mini optical cables, that plug into a 3.5m jack, but don't see any reference to that anywhere.
Here is the boards page.
It shows this in relation to the audio ports, not HDMI which I believe would run through the CPU.
