Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook launched

This time world wide


Although we've already reported about the X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook, it's is now finally official and the information has gone up on Creatives websites world wide.

Nothing has changed since our initial news post in terms of specifications or price. No official retail price for the US or Europe has been set as yet.

Creative supplies a downloadable copy of CyberLink PowerDVD with the card and it should be the advanced version with DTS and Dolby Digital EX support, so it's not some cheap features stripped version as is so common these days when it comes to bundled software.

It will be interesting to see how well this card works with Vista, but the drivers are meant to be in the box. For some reason it seems like you need 600MB of hard drive space as well, seems a bit excessive for a sound card, but we all know that Creatives has always had bloatware drivers, so here's another one.

One interesting point is that under Vista this card only supports 24-bit/48kHz output via the optical S/PDIF output while under XP it does 24-bit/96kHz, there's no reason why this should be the case as the input doesn't have these limitations. Hopefully this will be "fixed" in a future driver release, as so many thing are these days when it comes to Vista.
