ASUS SUPREMEFX PCIE SOUND CARD DRIVER
The SupremeFX offers both real surround for dedicated speakers, as well as virtual surround for headphones, so you can pick and chose based on your circumstances. The SupremeFX on the motherboard is again, just another realtek chip, a lot of marketing, and some higher quality caps, with the same driver and software stack that’s been modified for ASUS. Glad I could help. There are some Headsets out there with individual drivers for each channel, and are technically classed as real surround sound headsets, as they require the 3 or 4 connectors to work.

If you are confused between virtual and real surround, I’ll quickly explain. Yes, my password is: Both Rob and I like our audio and we’re not keen on the virtual surround sound in a lot of gear, so we both ended up going with high-end stereo headphones.
Supremefd 7, 7. Glad I could help. In regard to 8-channel HD stuff, apart from a whole mass of marketing, that’s 7. There are some Headsets out there with individual drivers for each channel, and are technically classed as real surround sound headsets, as they require the 3 or 4 connectors to work.
