It's a new model name, sure, and the distinctive button panel has been booted in favor of a touchscreen, but the most important part of the X-Fi update has nothing to do with hardware, and everything to do with dollars.
Creative's finally put that whole driver fiasco behind them and released Vista-capable drivers for their X-FI cards. What took them so long? Who knows, but they've added DVD Audio playback, which is nice, I guess. Grab yours now if you haven't broken your X-Fi in half already. [ via ]
