Bit Tech points out that AMD's new 785G chipset does not allow 7.1 channel LPCM audio, the new chipset still features the same integrated audio as the 780G, which means it's limited to 5.1 channel audio.
It does not allow 7.1 channel LPCM audio that we had previously stated. This multichannel HD audio is key for HTPC enthusiasts with prosumer audio equipment. Admittedly, this is a relatively small number of people, however it's a feature both Intel and Nvidia which have supported on their chipsets since last year.
