Designed as the essential audio upgrade for serious PC gamers it features 64MB of X-RAM and accelerating Direct X, OpenAL and EAX 5.0 to give highest quality cinematic audio at faster frame rates. Game Mode dedicates the processor 100 percent to game audio, powering the CMSS-3D function to give ultra-realistic surround sound over stereo headphones for LAN or late-night gaming.

The Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card makes the X-Fi chip available in a low-profile PCI format for small form factor or full-size PCs. Its enhanced connectivity includes an optical out and internal connectivity to audio jacks on the front panel of a PC for easy headphone and microphone access. Despite its reduced size, the Xtreme Gamer delivers the full power of Creative's X-Fi processor, including ultra-realistic CMSS-3D surround sound over normal headphones and hardware-accelerated Direct X, OpenAL and EAX 5.0 to give faster frame rates with cinematic sound. The X-Fi 24-bit Crystalizer restores sparkle to low-quality audio and upgrades games, MP3, DivX and TV audio to 24-bit quality. With THX Certification and Power DVD playback of Dolby and DTS decoding, it also guarantees excellent results when watching movies.
