Creative X-Fi Scandal

Posted on Wednesday, May 03 2006 @ 03:25:09 CEST by

The media around the world already covered it and revealed all these issues many months ago. Creative even confirmed some of these issues. Today after many months, we did a little research to find out what has happened since then. We found out that only a few manufacturers have released BIOS updates to solve some of these issues. Creative has made a mysterious firmware upgrade that cannot be found on their website, and some users claimed it killed their card. According to users in their forums, most of the effected consumers are STILL having issues with the X-Fi series.

The author is quite correct, with the market that Creative has, they should know better. But they are probably in decline as a company. There is no Xifi or Audigy product for pci-e despite that standard having been around for well over a year, and now 30% of notebooks are shipping with a new expresscard interface, and, once again, Creative is choosing not to be in that market. Seems to me this is a market begging for some competition, because it doesn't look like Creative has their heart in this.

    I have read that article. Dun believe everything they have said. Just google the title and you will many forums discussing it. They are calling the article slander and a blatant attempt to get traffic.
