Creative takes X-Fi audio to the notebook sector

Creative Labs may have the entire PC desktop market covered with its extensive X-Fi product family, but the company has yet to bring X-Fi to the notebook realm -- until now.

Creative's current top notebook offering is based on its previous generation Audigy family. The Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook is a PCMCIA-based card that provides THX certified 24-bit Advanced HD audio and 7.1 surround sound.

The new Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio Notebook card forgoes the PCMCIA interface and instead uses the Express Card interface. The card itself features an optical out/in jacks and a port for the breakout box to connect your speakers.

Creative hasn't released official specifications, pricing or availability for the new notebook card, but expect to see full details within the coming weeks.
