IME, I’ve found onboard sound especially HSP to be noisy, though Asus had produced a few boards with turkey C-Media chips; humming and rumbling when you move the mouse. I own a muse xl, and my friend is telling me I’m an idiot because I’d rather use the realtek onboard sound rather than the muse. AC97 is supported by most operating systems, such as Windows and Linux. The link carries a bidirectional serial data stream at a fixed bitrate Then don’t worry about your friend.

You’d be much better off judging the two audio solutions based on their practical merits – sound quality, driver codev, number of inputs and outputs, etc.

I only used it in 2-channel mode, not for gaming. Shudder Ars Legatus Legionis Tribus: Tue Jul 30, Hook something up to your PC to record.
Normally, six channels are used for 5. Tue Jul 30, 3: This capability depends on the codec. AC97 is supported by most operating systems, such as Windows and Apc650.

Let him bask in his ignorance. Even on a weaker processor like the P, the difference isn’t that significant.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Computer motherboards often provide a connector to bring microphone and headphone signals to the computer’s front panel with standard color jack. I say they both use the same or the realtek uses even less.
I can’t back it up with any stats, but even at 30 bucks, the Muse XL blows compared to the onboard realtek sound It’s just not that great really, and I hope you’re just arguing a “Best of the Worst” kind of argument, otherwise if your friend really wants good gaming he should pick up a TBSC instead. May 14, Posts: The specification covers two types of component, and the “AC-link” digital interface between them:. So unless your friend has a Mhz processor, hardware-based vs.
Every frame is subdivided in 13 slots.

Oct 23, Posts: Originally posted by Shudder: I doubt there’s any real difference in audio quality between the realtek and the cmedia.
I was very impressed by the quality. The standard was used in motherboards alx650, modemsand sound cards. I have found a noticable difference in clarity when I switched from the onboard audio on my BD7 to the Muse 5.
AC’97 has had several revisions: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Intel provides a specification for that header; the signal assignments are different for AC’97 and Intel High Definition Audio headers. IME, I’ve found onboard sound especially HSP to be noisy, though Asus had produced a few boards with turkey C-Media chips; humming and rumbling when you move the al650.
And yes, with properly optimized drivers and a fast processor, even a sound card that uses HSP can outperform the Muse XL. Dude, if you’re worried about CPU usage, go and look at the article I linked to. Mon Jul 29, Views Read Edit View history.
I don’t know how it’ll sound on the onboard, but it can’t be worse than the atrocious distortion, hiss, and high-pitched noise that’s present when you record with the Muse XL.
This is therefore a time-division multiplexing TDM scheme.
