4850 and HDMI, 7.1 digital surround sound... Tags: Radeon HDMI Sound Cards Graphics Last response: September 26, 2008 3:02 AM in Graphics & Displays Share daeder September 25, 2008 11:54:06 PM Ok, can someone clear this with me. Does the 4800 have build in hi-def sound like those xifi sound card sound blasters? On the website, it always advertises this kinda stuff, "HDMI - Enjoy the latest audio technologies using HDMI with 7.1 digital surround sound support" Does that mean I get to use my gpu as a sound card too? Theres no head phone jack though, how would I use it? If anyone can clear it that would be great. thanks More about : 4850 hdmi digital surround sound TheGreatGrapeApe September 26, 2008 12:12:15 AM Aduio out is only via HDMI as a digital signal, no OPAmps & DACs, therefore no headphone out or microhpone in, therfore, unless you're only sending your audio to an HDMI amp, you can't use it for sound.
