Inside, the card packs AudioNote capacitors and resistors, while a Texas Instrument power regulation circuit keeps the juice under control. The main part of the EVGA Nu Audio would be the XMOS xCore-200 DSP that will process the audio, and remove processing power away from the host processor.

EVGA is using some top shelf components inside of the Nu Audio sound card, with specialized capacitors from all sorts of companies, while power is provided by a SATA power connector instead of the normal PCIe x1 slot, meaning the Nu Audio sound card has a cleaner source of power. The company has thought of everything with pro audio gaming sound cards, and then crafted the new Nu Audio sound card. It's great to see as competition for Creative and ASUS just amped up in a big way from surprise player in the audio space with EVGA.
