That has to be a misprint.

Theres no way they would include audio on a video card. If it isn't a misprint, then it sounds kinda stupid IMO. It could lead to performance drops.

Now to wait for prices.

Slightest chance that perhaps this is an "oops" by design ?

Some true and false stuff ?

If 5.1 channel sound is able to pass through a HDMI connection, it might just be that - a pass through for the sound u already have.

I thought the sound passthrough thing was already widely known?

How do you figure? This is only a passthrough thing and not an integrated sound solution on your video. Its for ease of use. As for the console to computer thing, i highly agree.

my x1600 pro hdmi has a pass through. It's only so you can shove the audio down the hdmi cable into your tv.
