Creative X-Fi to go PCI Express

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 13 2007 @ 02:10 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inq learned at Computex that Creative is preparing new PCI Express versions of its X-Fi sound cards:
SINCE ASUS DECIDED to launch its line of PCI and PCIe based soundcards named Xonar (we first wrote about this product here), Creative had no alternative but to kick up plans for a PCI Express based X-Fi sound card.

During our trip to Taiwan, we learned that Creative's riposte is set for introduction during second half of this year. In fact, it should be on the market for the "Back to School" shopping madness. Some samples are already floating around, so do not be surprised when pictures of PCIe cards start being leaked through different forums and news sites.

Just like Comcast, it's amazing what some competition does to light a fire under their a**!
