Are discrete soundcards worth buying for modern games?

Recommended Posts

I don't know what Vulkan should have to do with audio, but I'm pretty sure we'll never get back to dedicated DSP and all.

GPUs are probably going to be the new sound cards.


Though a lot of onboard soundcards these days also offer DDL and DTS Connect for those with 5.1 optical receivers. (Different from DolbyHP)

It's even true nowadays optical is starting to feel the age and give way to HDMI (I think newest PS4 lacks it).


I work with audio, so it's worth it for that alone. ASIO dominates for working with audio.

Well, as I said this is now natively supported even on Realteks.
