Thumbs up

I've got an ASUS A7V333 with integrated CMI8738 audio and I'm quite satisfied with it. I've been able to make it sound even under pure DOS.

For onboard sound the nForce chipset has the best sound...........

I've not owned a Sblaster Audigy but that is because with the NV7-133r I've no need. Excellent sound with possibly the lowest CPU usage of any onboard system and by all accounts it will give the SBlaster Audigy a run for its money...

Whilst checking reviews/forums before purchasing my motherboard I checked all the tests/reviews and checked out the feedback from users who had run nForce/Sblaster setups and noticed how many ended up using the nForce's sound...

Anyways all those on board cards emulate moust of features and use more CPU power and main memory ,
Sound Blaster Live and Audigy have big internal cash you know
not like other cheap reproductions with only 64k or so
The Cmedia chip is a hardware sound chip. It is not a software codec like other solutions.

My board has the 6-channel cmediaaudio onboard and I love it. Since getting rid of my @*@*&*@Soundblaster Live, over haolf my games quit doing random lockups with the sound repeating over and over.

Don't blame the problems on SB LIVE...blame it on Via...and their PCI latency problems...apparently they still have 'em in their KT400 motherboards...

This is why i'm rooting for Nvidia and nForce2 to wipe Via in the chipset market...

If you don't believe me about the latency problems(this is why Via sucks the big one), then go the www.viaarena.com ....you will see countless patches...
Maybe you want to try one of 'em...maybe the "RPP" - Raid Performance Patch...see if that fixes your problems...

I was wondering, just how good is the Cmedia 6 channel inbuilt sound chip? These are included in some motherboards such as the A7v333r. Would they be good as a SBlive!value? definately not up to AUdigy standards? or is it in between these two cards. Its probably not as capable as the Nforce mcp erm sound thingy-me-jiggy? So folks anybody with this cmedia inbuilt sound chip or those in the know, please comment!!
Thanks
MUYA
By the way...what makes you think that the AUDIGY is waayyy better then SBLIVE?

Yeah, I know about the latency problems, but I had problems with the sblives in other chipsets too, including SIS and Intel. Fact is, life is easier without the pain of sblive, especially with their slow driver support.

life is better without Creative full stop...

their last good card was the SoundBlaster AWE64, then it all went PCI and Creative lost the plot...

Early SB cards were great, and basically the benchmark cards of their time.
