2.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking soundcard but driver issues are a serious flaw., 8 Oct 2012

This review is from: Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus 7.1 PCI Express Soundcard (Accessory)
Have been an avid PC gamer for some years and have changed my PC spec time and time again. Was looking for a good gaming soundcard as my older soundcard gave up the ghost, Did alot of investigation into the latest tech and came across the Asus Phoebus. Specs and card looked awesome and the original teething problems with drivers looked to be solved with a beta driver update. Installed the card and updated drivers and tried BF3, awesome sounds from gunfire to explosions. Changed to MW3 and bang kicked out to desktop, tried S/P and M/P with the same results. Out of 5 different games only 1 would work BF3, un-installed driver and wow games would run without a problem. Did a fresh install of wind 7 (ultimate) but to no avail same thing happened every time, the card in the specs is great but with poor drivers and no look of anything getting updated is in my opinion a serious flaw. I eventually sent my card back under the 30 day returns policy but may indeed buy this card again if or when they address the serious driver flaws.
