SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatality FPS Soundcard: Big. Expensive. - SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatality FPS Soundcard: Big. Expensive.

To me it is remarkable to see that large transistor count compared to let's say the SoundBlaster Live! series which quite honestly is a lovely product. The new X-Fi silicon has almost 26 times more transistors. The untouchable Audigy series had 4.6 Million transistors on that silicon, right now we're looking at 11 times less transistors compared to the new X-Fi audio processor. The real deal however kicks in when you buy a Fatality of Elite Pro edition card. The X-Ram functionally appeals to me. At this moment in time we just can't see the pure benefit of it just yet. As with all new technology the software needs to be patched and made compatible with this new technology. I'm a believer though and I believe this can be a very strong selling point to the gaming audience.
