View Full Version : Onboard Sound vs Sound Card in HL2.
11-29-2004, 07:48 PM
Well some weeks ago there was a thread on onboard sound discussion, which was locked to due to an unnamed someone flaming it. That someone kept asking for benchmarks, and I and others provided them, but since the latest ones I could find were from 2004 Toms and they were still benching games like Q3 and Splinter Cell, that someone disregarded those as old games and the results as useless, saying it has no effect on perfmance while not posting any evidence supporting his claims. He wanted new games? Well I was checking Gamespot and ran across this. http://hardware.gamespot.com/Story-ST-x-12...&body_pagenum=8 HL2 new enough for yeh? 14% FPS lose across soundcards. That falls into the noticable block for me. ANd this was on a powerful computer too. Tested with the most powerful hardware on the market today. and a decently powerful Realtek onboard card.
I'm not going to argue about this because there is nothing to argue, if you want proof of more such results go back to http://forums.gamershell.com/index.php?act...t=8442&st=0&hl= (http://forums.gamershell.com/index.php?act=ST&f=19&t=8442&st=0&hl=) . Ill be around.

I hate dead links..
this sadly is a direct link.. yet it doesn't work..... top one should though
and in case neither of those work
its the HL2 hardware peformance article, last page
EDIT: Sorry about that. Gamespots' linking seems a bit odd...
In case both fail I would love to post the image.. but gamespot jsut does it in HTML tables.. o well..
screen in case all the above fail.
Wahoo! Nice one for backing me up on this s..t..ep..h.. baby!

A shame the Soundstorm chip wasn't included in the test, I think it would've performed on par with the audigy.

sepht stop wining and just post what you want to post, you're such a baby, you re no better than the people you try to complain about.
Stop being so antaganistic :nxs:
Believe me , i don't agree with everything Sepht has to say but, everytime he posts you seem to be there trying to start a flame :rolleyes:
If you don't agree with him come up with something constructive to say as to reasons why :rolleyes:
It seems that most of the threads on here lately are a load of idiots starting flame wars and totally losing track of the topic :rant: :thumbdown:
pfffttt ya no doubt! the guy comes back a week later and starts crying about this sound card business again.....wtf :lol:
and dude the benchmarks your showing to us are like 66 fps-75-78......wow what a huge difference man, that would be totally unoticeable........lol, maybe if it was like a diffrence of 30 fps-75 or 66, then you might actually notice in game.
...........pointless garbage for sure. :suicide:
