Default Soundblaster X-Fi information released on the web

The most powerful audio processor ever built will soon be providing previously unimaginable benefits to users around the world. Delivering such benefits as accelerated frame-rates in games, providing the most realistic headphone surround experience and even adding back in to music the sparkle that is lost during MP3 or WMA compression - this new technology is going to transform the world of entertainment. Whatever you enjoy doing, if it involves audio, is never going to be the same again!

What! A couple of lousy frames?

And for that pay tens of Euros? No way.

ALC850 and ALC858 come for free with the motherboard and will do just as well.

sound quality with the SB series is much higher then the onboard AL chips;

not only does the SB sound better, it also takes away load from the CPU
