    price is similar to the x-fi platinum. Analogue output quality will be superior. Has Optical/RCA combo digital outputs. will support HDMI 1.3 later in the year via an add-on board.

    That was based on the ETA overclockers.co.uk was given. Obviously with the card being delayed, the shop isn't getting any stock to send me :)

    2 things I wonder:

    1) will the drivers get back hardware access in Vista?
    2) will it do DDL and DTS in XP? It says Q4 for Vista?

    1) Hardware has always been available in Vista via OpenAL - it suprises me how many "clued up" people are ignorant of this fact. Creative alchemy will transpose DirectSound calls to OpenAL calls where full EAX5 support is available.

    2) Yes.
