Creative went ahead with just two new cards this time, one a Fatal1ty branded gamer model with metal shield, another the base feature card - the HD Audio versions, a follow on to X-Fi Titanium HD, will wait for a later release I guess. The new audio processor has THX hardware acceleration plus a host of voice enhancement (CrystalVoice) and noise reduction technoligies implemented. Interestingly, the card's raw signal to noise ratio is 102 dB, more than good enough for gamers and movies, but a little less than the music oriented 109 dB on the X-Fi Titanium cards
