Creative X-Fi Notebook

AtomicMPC give us an overview of a soundcard add-on for notebook computers:

Professional multitrack interfaces aside, Creative has been the only real contender for aftermarket consumer soundcards. The last offering from Creative was the X-Mod, which disappointed, as it used a generic Texas Instruments DSP with performance similar to an Audigy, but with two filters from the X-Fi feature set tacked on. Its most recent attempt delivers a card powered by a true X-Fi chip.

I was just at Fry's today and looking for a creative card. Couldn't find anything. I knew they were out there as I've seen them before.

I'm kinda glad I didn't see one as I think I'll probably like this one alot better.
Thanks Giz!

I like my Creative card MUCH more, now that XP finds and installs its own driver for it. Creative's drivers come with so much added dreck.. there should be a law against this horsefeathers.

Creative drivers have always left much to be desired. As does their software, which tends to be very bloated and over-featured, often with stability issues.

And don't get me started on the evils of EAX.
