Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi 2 Coming?

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi 2 Coming?

With the recent foray about Creative Labs threatening the driver modder, daniel_k with legal actions. To be optimistic, maybe all of those reports of Creative Labs sound cards not working properly in Vista weren’t due to poorly made drivers after all. It is because Creative Labs is intentionally sabotaging old cards through drivers so that it will not work in Win Vista and will encourage more sales for its newer X-Fi Sound Blaster. You may cry foul and scream and shout, but welcome to the business world, thats how it works in reality. Microsoft often do such stunt and Apple is not much difference by forcing you to sign up with AT&T so that you can use the iPhone.OK, enough talk about daniel_k and his modded driver.

Regarding X-Fi 2, yes, a new version of the X-Fi Sound Blaster. There are no official details about Creative Labs SoundBlaster X-Fi 2 available at the moment. The mention of the second-generation X-Fi audio card was noticed by some sharp eyes in the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List that does not list any details about unreleased hardware. However, the fact that on the 11th of March, 2008, Creative Technology received “Designed for Windows Vista” and “Vista Premium” logos for its SB X-Fi 2 may be an early indicator that the new sound-card is coming to the market.

Its still not clear what X-Fi 2 is capable of but stay tuned for the latest update.

Take note that the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List is currently only compatible with Internet Explorer 6 and above. See what I mean, Microsoft is also forcing us to upgrade to IE 6 and above or cut off competitors such as Mozilla Firefiox :)

Thanks Alien_Brain!
