In a new article, CustomPC looks back at the history of Creative Labs's Sound Blaster and offers an interview with the company to discuss the firm's past and future. You can read it over here.
CPC: How much of Creative’s revenue comes from Sound Blaster cards these days, and how does this compare with the past?
Sim Wong Hoo: The sound card revenue of today obviously can’t be compared with the heyday of Sound Blaster in the past, when we used to ship millions of sound cards a month. That said, Sound Blaster is still an important contributor to our revenue. Plus, with the recent launch of our Sound Blaster AE series, we are seeing a renewed interest in sound cards.
