Voyetra Turtle Beach Inc. today unveiled its newest sound card/audio accelerator for the PC gaming and consumer audio markets, the Montego II Quadzilla. The board will be available worldwide from major computer and electronics retailers this month ($99 estimated street price).
The Montego II Quadzilla places the Vortex 2 chipset on a Turtle Beach custom-designed board to deliver premium sound quality and positional audio effects for gaming and general use applications. In addition to doubling the processing power of the original Montego, the Montego II Quadzilla utilizes the new A3D 2.0 API to add Wavetracing technology, which models the acoustic characteristics of a virtual environment via wall reflections and occlusions in real- time. For example, an explosion behind a nearby wall will sound different from the same explosion that occurs across the room or directly overhead.
While the Quadzilla s upports four-speaker output for hard core gamers, it also appeals to the casual user, requiring only a single pair of speakers or headphones for full 3D functionality. It also includes a standard S/PDIF RCA digital output jack for direct-to- digital recording or data transfer.
Other Montego II Quadzilla features include a >97 db signal-to- noise ratio; 18-bit high-resolution converters; DirectSound and DirectSound3D acceleration (96 simultaneous DirectSound audio streams); AC'97, PC'97, and PC'98 compatibility; support for legacy DOS-based games; 64 hardware-based wavetable voices, with an additional 256 voices available via software synthesis (4 MB upgradeable sample set); and a hardware-based, 10 band graphic equalizer. It also supports downloadable samples (DLS) for custom audio patch playback. For more information, visit http://www.tbeach.com.
