Sound Blaster Or Ac97' ?

Now, we've got plenty of cycles to spare even when playing intense games. As such dont expect any framerate gains as its all going to go onto the CPU anyway. Because I only use a sh!tting pair of stereo speakers, I hardly notice the difference in sound quality/processing time between the AC97 and the SBLive.

I have really never heard a pc-based speaker system that didnt have at least some humm induced to it.

My new computer has the Intel AC'97 sound chip. This is problem for me because I record music to minidisc using the fibre optic out and record real time (waiting for the 1 GB minidisc to upgrade to net md). I too am happily using the onboard sound on the MSI KT3. The new DOSferatu is Jeff Leyda (Flopper, Throttle).

BTW, there is a silent update, the original version had a "Does-not-work-at-all-BUG" ---This is a LOGITECH mouse driver, but some software expect here the following string:*** This is Copyright 1983 Microsoft South Africa SB Live has a built in audio processor and doesn't steal processor cycles, which the AC '97 does.

  2. Feb 27, 2004 #1 Gryfon TS Rookie I just posted about this and I think AC97 is bad.
  3. Also SoundMAX integrated Audio is crap compared to SB live.

this is different, it's a little weird. https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/onboard-audio-ac97-vs-soundblaster-live.972999/ Since I never made any demands in my "license" about credits or keeping it open source, he didn't do anything to keep it that way. At least the live has some dedicated sound hardware, although EAX is not h/w accelerated AFAIK, so can lower frame rates if you enable it. (That's why I went Audigy 2 I think/hope that I did it properly without trying to be too assertive.

I think it only supported up to ICH 5, but this subject has gotten me interested in doing an update to it, and I have access to a few newer boards It's very easy to forget even libraries credits when caught up in the midst of lots of code. AC97 outputs bitstream throught the fiber out as long as your dvd decoding software supports it. But after I got my little A7V8X, that changed...
