Default Re: Blizz removes HW sound acceleration from WoW

Fmod might be good, but its just another middleware that might get more prone to problems due to hardware/driver incompatibilities. I'm curios to how good MS XAudio2 is going to be. And the X-Fi is a great hardware, using XP there was never any problems with games and great sound and performance. Using CPU for 3d sound is feasible, especially with multicore CPU's but in the end, I'd rather have the CPU work 100% on game/AI/physics, and my separate soundcard manage the audio.
