Onboard sound will get more advanced, The Inquirer reports. They heard both MSI and GigaByte will use Creative Labs's Audigy 2 sound chip for new motherboards.
After the successful, but overcrowded K8N (AMD based) and P4N (Intel based) Diamond motherboards, MSI has launched a new revision of its AMD board, dubbed K8N Diamond Plus. Although "Plus" isn't saying something special, we're talking about fully-fledged nForce4-SLI x16 motherboard. The K8N Diamond Plus features Audigy2 sound chip (named Audigy SE), a welcome improvement over already good SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit 7.1. The new board also sports Dolby Digital certification.
