The Creative X-Fi processor can remix and remaster audio on the fly to improve the sound quality of your movies, games, and music.
The rising popularity of PC host audio has been troubling for discrete, add-in sound card manufacturers. Most of today's motherboards come standard with built-in sound that's sufficient for basic gaming and media playback. Why buy a sound card if my motherboard can already handle game audio, right?
Sound card pioneer Creative Labs has taken the host audio challenge in stride and intends to make sound cards relevant again with good old-fashioned innovation. Creative's new X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity audio processor promises to dramatically improve the sound quality of already existing movies, games, and music--just install the card and hear the immediate upgrade over regular built-in PC audio.
