Bright Side of News writes about the Sparkle SFAUD2A1, a new sound amplifying card that was shown off at Computex this week.
Instead, SFAUD2A1 card is a sound amplifying card, something we haven't heard before in this form. Sparkle created a card that uses either a discrete, or more expected - motherboard-integrated audio chip such as RealTek's ALC series - to clean up & amplify the signal going out to the speakers. This concept is interesting one indeed, but going through the specifications made us wonder.
In order to create the card, Sparkle teamed up with D2Audio, digital amplifier company that was recently purchased by Intersil. By using DAE chip [already proven in Alienware's Hanger 18 HTPC, Ed.] and so on, Sparkle hopes to create the market of PC amplifiers.
