SINGAPORE - 9 November 2018 - Creative Technology Ltd today announced that it has been named a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for the Sound BlasterX G6 USB sound card in the Gaming category. Following the double Innovation Awards Honoree wins for Sound BlasterX AE-5 at CES 2018, this is further testament to Creative's standing as a worldwide leader in audio technology.
The Sound BlasterX G6 is a feature-filled audio powerhouse with a svelte form factor.
Built on 30 years of Sound Blaster audio processing technology, the Sound BlasterX G6 was developed with the belief that audio performance is every bit as important as visual quality in gaming and entertainment enjoyment. With its onboard audio processing capabilities powered by its SB-Axx1 chip set, the Sound BlasterX G6 is the only hardware audio solution which provides high-level performance that is consistent across all platforms, regardless of whether one is gaming on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or PC.
The Sound BlasterX G6 is versatile enough to be a hardware Dolby Digital decoder, creating essentially limitless virtual surround channels for headphones and speaker systems. It also offers best-in-class audiophile-grade playback of standard and hi-res content with up to 32bit / 384 kHz content playback and a pristine 130 dB dynamic range. It also stands out as the only portable DAC / AMP to offer Xamp proprietary bi-amplification, which powers each earcup separately for smooth and accurate distortion-free playback.
The Sound BlasterX G6 will be showcased at CES 2019 - the world's largest consumer electronics show - which runs January 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Venetian Meeting Rooms, 2nd Floor, Bassano 2701.
