SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS: Closer Look
Now that we have introduced to you all the members of this new sound card family, let’s take a closer look at one of the most vivid solutions: SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS. This sound card has been designed for extreme gamers, which is clearly stated by the package design.
The distinguishing feature of the PCB this sound card is based on (besides the converters) is a large LED with the model logo. However, it will make a difference for you only if you have a system case with transparent panels or segments.
The card requires additional power supply: an indisputable attribute of contemporary high-end gaming systems. Another cable, a flat one, connects the sound card with the commutation unit.
The front panel of the commutation console has remained practically unchanged and looks just like the front panel of the identical unit shipped with the Audigy series. The only significant difference is that the MIDI-connectors have again become miniature (special adapters are included with the package).
