Asus Brings HDMI to Sound Cards

Category: Sound Cards
Posted: 10:15PM

At Computex 2008, Asus announced that it is readying the world's first HDMI ready sound card for mass distribution, and it's going to be feature-packed for sure. The Xonar HDAV1.3 complies with the HDMI 1.3a standard, and will decode lossless HD audio from Blu-ray discs in Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio at 24-bit, 96-192KHz, delivering up to 7.1 channels of crystal clear audio. Connecting via a PCI-E x1 slot, the HDAV1.3 uses analog audio to produce a 120db signal-to-noise ratio with very little distortion. This card should be a hot-ticket item for people lacking a high-end video card or powerful CPU, as the Xonar HDAV1.3 can handle the video end of a Blu-ray disc also, thanks to an on-board Splendid HD video processor.
