Preview of new high end Creative card X-Fi. - Page 4

post #46 of 51
From the more detailed specs, it looks like the the X-Fi *CHIP* can do 44.1 without resampling. However, there is no guarantee that a complete SB branded card with the X-Fi chip will actually do this, especially in WDM / Wave Out mode.
With large amounts of the card dedicated to doing effects / resampling etc, chances are the entire software / hw stack will be focused on doing game effects, and that will be written with 48khz in mind. Hopefully at a minimum the card will be capable of simple 44.1 stereo playback in some mode, whatever 'creation' mode is. If I can get bit-perfect output as well as line-out that has been unsullied by the card resampling it when I'm playing back music, I will be happy.
E-Mu branded X-Fi based cards will be interesting, considering what they've been able to achieve with the older gen chips.

You already have one of those? So, how's it sound? Did they finally revamp the output stage and use some decent opamps?

Is the NDA lifting when the countdown runs down in 4+ days? When it does, it will be a month since the last info release.
