Creative Utilizes New-er Technology

With the release of the PCI-Express system bus being at least 3 years ago, Creative Technology has finally decided to utilize the bus with one of their audio cards. Read the news article for more details.

Relieved that sound card manufacturers are finally using PCI-E? Or did PCI fair just fine? Discuss what you think below...
