Driver trickery doesn't work


You may or may not know that Asus has released a driver for its range of Xonar soundcards which the company claims can do EAX 3, 4 and 5, but now it seems like Creative has gone on a counterattack with Phil O'Shaughness, Creative's communications VP stating that this isn't the case.
