Does anyone have experience using this device for gaming?
This is the non Pro version, and it is supposed to have virtual CMSS 3D and OpenAL support (not hardware accelerated, but this is the best I could find on an external sound card for a laptop).
I was just wondering if the CMSS 3D is good enough to bother with.
The setup I have planned for it is:
Laptop > Creative X-Fi Surround 5.1 (S/PDIF out, Passthrough) > Audio GD 11.32 S/PDIF in > AKG K702 Annies.
This way I'll completely bypass the amp and DAC in the Creative unit and use it to pass CMSS 3D and EAX to my NAF 11.32.
For music I'll just leave the creative unit out and use ASIO in foobar2000.
