X-Fi in ExpressCard guise

Written by test

Japan only so far...


Creative has released its latest sound card in the X-Fi series in Japan and this time it's an ExpressCard version. The Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook as it is called is designed to fit an ExpressCard 54 slot on your notebook. The only problem here is that some notebooks only have ExpressCard 34 slots (the number referes to the width of the slot in mm), such as Apple's MacBooks.

The Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook offers 7.1-channel sound for your notebook via a breakout cable. It also adds optical in and out, a headphone socket and a combined mic/line in jack.

It features the X-Fi 24-bit Crystalizer and the CMSS-3D functions, but for some reason it seems to lack EAX Advanced HD 5.0, which indicates that his is an entry level X-Fi card.

The Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook should be available this month in Japan for a SRP of €79, although we would expect it to sell for something similar when it actually arrives on the European market.

You can read the full pressrelease here in Japanese or here in Babelfish

This is what the card looks like
