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 :)

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.
