The forgotten component - What's up with computer audio? - Benchmarks - Battlefield Vietnam

Last month during QuakeCon it became clearly apparent that computer audio has become somewhat of a forgotten component in the computer industry when talking to gamers and listening to companies at the gaming event. We'll present some benchmark numbers of five different sound solutions as well as provide commentary along the way on our thoughts of computer audio solutions and what should be done to improve things using nVidia's SoundStorm APU as an example.

Battlefield Vietnam

 

Battlefield Vietnam is one of the most impressive computer games when it comes to audio. As you battle it out in the jungles of Vietnam you feel as if you are actually there with a large amount of sounds being processed.

 

 

With High Quality EAX sound enable for every sound card, we can see that the Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS is well out in front. The SoundStorm is still able to generate a very respectable score considering the extra work it is performing. The software driven Cmedia 8738 is left well behind here is producing 40% less frames per second than the SoundStorm.
