XAudio2 and Hardware Acceleration
I've been starting to look at the XAudio2 stuff to wrap my head around it. The only big question I have currently is will we benefit with hardware acceleration for sound? I've done some searches for it on the forums and have seen that hardware will work with it, but I've also gleaned in some of my "skimming the 'net" on the subject that hardware acceleration may not be necessary with multi-core processor based systems.
Am I somewhat firing on all cylinders on this assumption?
