these cards are the same why rename them and sell them as different cards. I think the x-fi xtreme audio is the same card too. these cards dont even have hardware mixing. not sure about the x-fi.

Since the above poster decided to be a smartass, I'm going to post some links of the card for you, to see if they're the same or not.

On the X-Fi XtremeGamer does'nt it have all the same qualities as the regular X-Fi except it does' have the AD_Link (26 pin) connector. as for as sound quality goes does'nt it have the same 51million transistor processor.
