In this article we will discuss two integrated sound subsystems. The first is formed by a VIA VT8235 South Bridge and an AC’97 VIA VT1616 codec, and the second one is based on nForce2 MCP-T with the integrated APU SoundStorm and an AC’97 Realtek ALC650 codec. For better comparison we will also include the results for Creative Audigy2 sound card.
Performance: 3DMark03 (Sound Tests)
3DMark03 offers an air battle scene and counts up average fps rate. Just like with Comanche4 Demo, we witness a noticeable performance drop when we enable the sound.
Unfortunately, 3DMark 2003 found the audio subsystem from VIA unable to reproduce 60 sound sources at a time, but the general tendency is clear enough.
