Mediante il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Gigabyte ha ufficializzato la dotazione, da parte delle nuove motherboard appartenenti alle linee Gigabyte X58/P45/P43/P41, della tecnologia audio Sound Blaster X-Fi di Creative che rende le schede madri interessate pienamente aderenti a "X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity", una sorta di standard per l'audio, inventato da Creative, mirato al porting dell'alta fedeltà non soltanto nel playback audio e video ma anche nel gaming.
X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity può essere schematizzato come un contentitore che abbraccia le seguenti tecnologie: X-Fi CMSS-3D Virtual (gestisce la spazialità della resa audio), X-Fi Crystalizer (si occupa dell'accuratezza della riproduzione) e EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0 (il top in ambito gaming).
Taipei, Taiwan, February 24, 2009 – GIGABYTE Technology CO., LTD., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today is pleased to announce GIGABYTE X58/P45/P43/P41 series motherboards now support Creative's latest Sound Blaster X-Fi technologies, delivering a premium audio quality and listening experience for your PC.
X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity is the new audio standard from Creative that makes your music and movies way better. It breathes life into songs, restores detail, and expands the music to surround sound. For music lovers or gamers, X-Fi technology delivers superior 3D audio solutions. At the heart of X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity lie three key technologies; X-Fi CMSS-3D Virtual, X-Fi Crystalizer and EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0.
X-Fi CMSS-3D Virtual technology expands your stereo MP3s and digital movies into surround sound over multi-channel speakers, stereo speakers or even headphones. X-Fi CMSS-3D Virtual expands the sound stage of any setup so you literally feel surrounded by multi-channel speakers, allowing you to enjoy an incredibly natural surround sound experience.
X-Fi Crystalizer technology restores the detail and vibrancy to your compressed music and movies by digitally re-mastering all the highs and lows, while leaving the mid range (vocals) untouched. X-Fi Crystalizer technology delivers richer, more dynamic elements to you music, and ensures you'll hear everything in crystal clear clarity.
EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0, with its state-of-the-art Multi-Environment rendering and reverb modeling, delivers a much more realistic and immersive 3D gaming experience than is possible with standard motherboard audio.
GIGABYTE's entire X58/P45/P43/P41 motherboard lineup as well as other motherboard series featuring the ALC889A or ALC888 audio codecs now offer support for Sound Blaster X-Fi Technology, providing way better audio effects for your PC entertainment experience.
