Yes, and notice that it is mounted in a Blaster PC, which already has onboard SB Live Platinum 5.1 built in! The only added feature is the Firewire? And I'm supposed to share Firewire with sound on the same 133MB/s slot? When I can buy a Firewire card for only $40, but the new sound card with no other new features will cost a couple hundred? I'm sure most AMD guys out there will rant about how this is the best thing since sliced bread, Creative has most of them fooled. As for me, I'm already disatisfied with the Live Platinum, and don't need to spend more money to be further insulted by this new card!
It's probably not an official site. Either it got leaked, or they're just testing the water.

There's not near enough detail to say this for sure. The site just has the standard marketing BS about how it's going to do everything you would ever want to use, and several things you don't need, but make you look cool, thereby allowing you to get better friends, the perfect wife/husband (how many woman are in this forum?), and suddenly become healthy, wealthy and wise.
Wait, no...it's Microsoft that always says that.
Apple? Macintosh? What are these strange words you speak?
But what if you didn't have a firewire card or sound card. It's hard to gauge what other additions or fixes they may have added to this card. This is just a preview and nothing has been released from Creative yet. If you had a Live Platinum 5.1 card I dont see any reason to upgrade as well. But for around a $200 pricetage that is alot of functionality for a sound card.
