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.

He has gone on record and said, "The new Asus drivers are falsely reporting EAX 5 capabilities in order to get these games to output 3D audio on Asus sound cards. Asus customers are not getting a genuine EAX Advanced HD experience with this driver update."
