AUDIO: Unbelievable sound

To achieve this, Asus placed an audio solution called SupremeFX III, a first that extracts the full capability of an audio chip to its limit and delivers an unbelievable audio experience! And not just that, with the SupremeFX Shielding Technology, each part of SupremeFX III has been carefully laid out to avoid unnecessary reduction of audio quality due to crosstalk or electric coupling and the core is covered with an aluminum EMI shield that blocks all electromagnetic interference generated from nearby components. And to cope with even the highest possible instantaneous drain of power, a 1500uF capacitor was added which enables SupremeFX III to restore all details of the audio source.
The audio effect is further enhanced with the support of X-Fi®Xtreme Fidelity™ and EAX® Advanced™ HD 5.0 via the Creative® ALchemy software package together with the surround effect by THX®TruStudio PRO™ the breathtaking sound effects that creates a perfect gaming environment!
