Asustek returns to sound card market

ASUS is reportedly deep into production of their Xonar D2 sound card and shipments are expected somewhere around Q3 2007.

The company indicated that the card adopts the Asustek-developed AV200 chip, manufactured by United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) at the 0.35 micron process. Production already started in May, and shipments will start in the third quarter with a market price of about US$199.

With ASUS entering the sound card market with the Xonar D2, it will be interesting to see how the two major players: Creative and Auzentech react. It will be an interesting few months ahead with Auzentech' X-Fi equipped Prelude card due in the next few weeks, and the Xonar D2 due later this year. Will they be able to de-throne Creative as the sound card market leader where many have tried before unsuccessfully?

That's the chair I have in work. It's well squeaky though and we gota spray the joint underneath with WD40. Other than that it's a pretty comfy seat.

Oh and your glass table is pimpin' mate!

EDIT: Shouldn't this be in 'show it off'??
