ASUS Xonar D2X-The solution to audio problems in games for Windows Vista.
After the implementation of Windows Vista, the entire audio architecture has changed. All this has resulted in initial problems for game users, such as loss of surround sound or loss of Direct3D and EAX acceleration features when using games in the Windows Vista environment. To solve this problem, the ASUS Xonar family of audio cards uses the exclusive ASUS DS3D GX technology, this new extension incorporated into the driver, provides full surround support and hardware acceleration features by translating DirectX to the DS3D GX. While other solutions such as Open AL require prior installation and support for the game, the DS3D GX does not. Players will enjoy DirectX games with enhanced surround sound and EAX effects, immediately after device installation.
The online communication or LAN chats (games) clearer.
The Xonar D2X includes the new "Acoustics Echo Cancellation" (AEC) technology that facilitates the best possible online verbal communication quality. The AEC eliminates up to 40dBs of the loudspeakers' return and suppresses noises that would otherwise reach the user's microphone. These features make the Xonar D2X the best audio option for both online chats in VOIP applications (Skype, MSN, Google, QQ, etc.) and online games.
Unmatched sound clarity.
The ASUS Xonar D2X delivers a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 118dB at both the audio input and output. Thus reaching the limit in audio quality for most PC platforms. The Xonar D2X delivers the 118dB ratio on all 7.1 channels, distancing itself from the standard cards, which only deliver the optimal SNR for the front stereo output. Features:
