M-Audio Revolution 7.1 review updated
Based on new information revealed in today's interview
with VIA's Keith Kowal, we've updated our M-Audio Revolution 7.1 review
. Though we originally reported that the Envy24HT had the same number of hardware accelerated DirectSound channels as the vanilla Envy24, VIA actually removed support for hardware DirectSound acceleration from the Envy24HT, which helps explain the chip's poor performance relative to the Envy24-equipped DMX 6fire 24/96 in our 3D audio tests. We've updated our review to reflect this new information, though it doesn't change any of our overall conclusions.
