Cebit 2009: Asus shows Xonar DS
It seems like Asus added a slightly changed Xonar DX to the product array. The Asus Xonar DS is a PCI soundcard.
At the Asus booth one can see more than graphics cards and motherboards - like the Asus Xonar DS. The obviously slimed down/overhauled version of the Xonar DX offers DTS and 7.1 sound for the PCI slot. EAX 5.0 and GX2.5 are offered via software emulation. When the card will hit the market and how much it will cost is unknown at the moment. In our gallery you can find some impressions.
Although many booths at the Cebit are still under construction and the trade show won't open its gates until March 3, PC Games Hardware is nevertheless on the site and elivers firsthand information.
