Creative Sound Blaster Z Sound Card

techPowerUp!
29 January 2013
  • Summary: Creative managed to create a solid sound card that sounds great across the board. While it does not have an immediate wow factor, it is a solid performer and the bundle is perfect for most at-home gamers. Scout Mode is a bit odd sounding, but its integrated 11-band equalizer works well, which makes tweaking the sound card around specific titles easy.
  • Pros: Good set of features, Great in-game performance, Usable 11-band equalizer, Headphone amplification stage can drive fairly demanding headphones well, Quality microphone included, Driver suite is easy to navigate
  • Cons: Driver suite is memory intensive at over 80 MB RAM, Scout Mode preset not that effective, Headphone output gain is a tad high
