Creative previews X-Fi sound card for notebooks

Creative X-Fi ExpressCard

Creative at CeBIT demonstrated its first-ever sound card designed for modern notebooks. So far titled only the X-Fi Notebook, the adapter will plug into the ExpressCard 54 slot of newer portables and uses the faster standard to provide sound closer to the kind found with internal sound cards on desktops. The base card includes its own analog/optical input and output connections for simpler speaker arrangements; an attachable breakout box provides more connections for more complex setups.

Despite the early showing, Creative has not officially announced the X-Fi Notebook nor given launch details, though it should be available within the next few months at a price comparable to its $100, PC Card-based Audigy 2 ZS Notebook. [via NotebookReview]
