Creative starts licensing X-Fi audio technology

Posted on Friday, Apr 20 2007 @ 11:05 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Earlier this week Creative licensed its audio chips to Auzentech:
Dubbed the Auzen X-Fi Prelude 7.1, its main attraction will be the Creative X-Fi chipset sat at the heart of the board.

Auzentech makes high end products with top-spec connectors, converters and expandability. The new card will support EAX, obviously, but also Dolby Digital Live encoding.

Said the chaps at Auzentech, ""When you're playing games, the Auzen X-Fi Prelude soundcard will output the best 3D audio and latest EAX effects. And when you're listening to music or watching movies, you'll enjoy an audiophile-quality experience."
The first sound cards from Auzentech based on the X-Fi is expected in May.

Well Vista has kind of messed EAX up a bit but that will recover. Overall, this is a very good move, both for Creative and the market overall.

Would it have Dolby headphone and EAX?
