Videologic's SonicFury - Videologic's SonicFury
Mon Jan 15, 2001 | 1:37P| PermaLink
Sound. From onboard audio, to the latest $200 Monster, sound is an integral part of the PC experience. For the longest time. Creative's line of EMU 10k processor based cards, the Soundblaster Live series, have reigned supreme. Aureal has been assimilated by the multimedia giant, so no help there. Who's left? Today we take a look at Videologic's SonicFury. Does it have what it takes to stand next to the best, and perhaps outshine it? PC Audio. You have a wide range of choices. Anything from onboard AC97 audio, found on many of today's mainboards, to upwards of $200+ for a high end consumer soundcard. By and large, you get what you pay for here. Onboard audio is cheap, and works, and can even sound halfway decent, but utilizes your system's CPU entirely too much. Inexpensive plugin PCI soundcards abound, but again here, many of these begin to falter, especially when they're having to mix multiple soundstreams, as is the case in many games. Creative Lab's EMU 10k series cards, the Soundblaster Live series, have arguably held the top spot among today's consumer level soundcards for quite some time. Indeed, I own several, and have found them to be some of the best performing soundcards for the money. With the disappearance, and subsequent assimilation of Aureal by Creative, the gap performance-wise between Creative's cards, and other offerings, has widened significantly. Until now.
