|The X-Fi's core can run at two internal sampling rates, 44.1 KHz and 48 KHz, although it will only run at 44.1KHz in Creation mode, and if you specifically tell it to do so.
And pray tell, why the need to waste so much transistors on SRC operations, when the Envy24 and derivatives only needs 2 clock crystals and can output both 44.1KHz and 48KHz natively with no resampling?
|However, the X-Fi still runs its effects engines at either 44.1 KHz or 48 KHz.
To implement native 96 KHz/192KHz support in the effects engines would require more transistors, increase die size, and reduce per-wafer yields.
So basically the effects processor is the same old tired 16bit 48KHz crap from the EMU10k2? I wonder how much exactly is "NEW" in this X-Fi, or should we call it EMU10k2.6?http://www.3dss-forums.com/cgi-bin/w...=5&o=14&fpart=
Even Chastity, 3DSoundsurge's reviewer for A4P and the other 3DSS forumers spotted the resample part, plus the people who posted here earlier, why can't you 2 be on the same page as the rest of the world?
