For Epox Tech ... and.. no soundstorm on 8rda+

8rda+ has no soundstorm audio right? only 8rda2+ with sata and other staff will have it.. like asus A7N8X.. only deluxe model is provided with SoundStorm Audio...
Right?

Where's Israfel when you need him...

Anyway, yes the board has Sound Storm. It is implemented throught the Realtek PHYs. The 8RDA (without the +) doesn't have Soundstorm.

Wrong...sort of. Soundstorm is a certifiction for the Nvidia sound. The 8RDA+ fully utilizes the Nvidia APU and it has the exact same sound as the ***does.

AFAIK, the only reason the 8RDA+ is not fully "Soundstorm" certified like the **** board is because it lacks a SPDIF connection. You can buy a seperate SPDIF connector from Epox, but since it does not come with the bracket in the retail package, it is not certified.

Other than that, it is EXACTLY the same as the sound on the*** Both boards fully use the Nvidia APU, and both boards use the Realtek CODEC to handle the output ports and interface with the APU.

To my knowledge, the 8RDA2+ will be the exact same board as the 8RDA+, it will just have a add on S-ATA controller and a second LAN port...

This has actually been discussed over and over and over...you might try to do a little research.

I hope this helps..

I thought that the 8RDA+ was NOT SoundStorm compliant because it lacked the SPDIF, but otherwise the audio is the exact same, just no official "SoundStorm."

I don't use the SPDIF, so it's the same for me...

The answer was just explained to you. Soundstorm is simply a certification. Both boards use the Realtek CODEC and fully use the Nvidia sound from the APU. The only difference is the SPDIF port on the Asus.

Are you one of those people that ask a question and when the answer is given and it does not suit you, you ignore it and keep asking until someone gives you an answer you like?

Darka -

Sorry, didn't mean to come off as rude. I didn't realize you hadn't read the explanations yet. This Nforce sound confusion is just getting a bit annoying...


mookydooky -

Nah, I just constantly explain this same damn thing over @ AT so many times I might as well save it and just cut and paste it everytime this is asked..
