Conclusion: Overall, I was very impressed and surprised at how well the X-Fi Forte performed. It really did make a big difference to sound quality. All the modes and adjustable settings were very addictive too and I couldn’t help tinkering.
Pros: Great Sound Quality, Easy installation, EAX 5.0, Great adjustable settings – Crystallizer
Conclusion: It’s definitely nice to see that Creative have released their chips for other manufacturers to use. Not only does this begin to lower the price of an X-Fi board, but it enables people like Auzentech to add additional features to the card that otherwise wouldn’t be available.
Pros: Great sound quality, EAX 5.0, Future driver extras
