Performance in SpectraLAB
In order to get numeric representation of the sound clarity and crispness we resorted to SpectraLAB (v.4.32.17) test. You can check out our earlier articles to read more about the testing approached we use with this benchmark. During the tests session with Creative Sound Blaster Audigy4 Pro we complied with Creative’s recommendations. The results given below correspond to the LineOut 1 – LineIn 3.
Here are the spectrograms for the Sound Blaster Audigy4 Pro:
Determining IMD at 44,100Hz/16bit
Determining IMD at 48,000Hz/16bit
To tell the truth, I haven’t noticed any significant difference between the sounding quality of the graphics cards. Frankly speaking, during this entire test session I honestly failed to figure out why they released it at all. I assume there were purely marketing reasons for this launch.
But anyway, it is out and it provides excellent quality, just like the predecessor.
