THX-Enhanced Surround Sound for Your PC
When you connect the X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro to your PC, you’ll immediately notice an improvement in audio performance. The card utilizes TruStudio Pro, an audio technology developed by THX. This technology works to expand your PC’s audio channels, which allows surround sound content to be reproduced faithfully, making sound more expansive, immersive, and realistic. Even if you’re listening through headphones, you’ll experience the surround sound effect.
In addition, TruStudio Pro uses a variety of techniques to make your music sound livelier. It restores music’s natural frequency range–something that is often lost when music is compressed into MP3 format. It also fills in low frequencies, which adds a little extra impact to bass. You’ll experience higher quality audio, even when streaming MP3s from your music library.
Enhanced Gaming Audio and Performance
In addition to enriching your gaming audio, the X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro will also boost your PC’s gaming performance as a whole. By functioning as a dedicated sound unit, the card frees up resources that would otherwise be tied up in audio processes. This allows your PC to dedicate more of its processing power towards other tasks, like graphical and AI processing. The result is a more seamless gaming experience, free of hiccups and slowdowns.
