ASUS Xonar DX soundcard

Typically associated more with notebooks, motherboards and videocards, ASUS has announced a new soundcard, the Xonar DX PCI Express 7.1. The company claims the card produces audio 35 times cleaner than that of motherboard chips, with a 116dB signal-to-noise ratio in front output. As it name implies, the card is also capable of 7.1 surround sound, though only through Dolby codecs such as Digital Live and Pro Logic 8x.

The DX is further compatible with the latest version of Microsoft's DirectSound, used in DirectX 10, and EAX 5.0, the latest effects simulation devised by Creative. Average frequency response is rated between 10Hz and 48KHz, and the card has a maximum quality output of 192KHz at 24 bits. Pricing and release dates are currently unclear, though the card should begin shipping in the near future.
