TechWorks debuts new cards

Claims will set gamers hearts a-beating

TechWorks has introduced a new range of PCI 3D sound cards – aimed at the serious PC gamer. TechWorks claims that its budget £19.99 PowerVortex1, based on the 8820 chip from Aureal and supporting the A3D 1.0 protocol, is the only true 3D sound card in its price range. At the high end is the PowerVortex2 SuperQuad. The £50 card is being touted as ‘the ultimate solution for gamers’ with output for headphones, two and four speaker setups with A3D 2.0, and an infrared SP/DIF out connector. The mid-range option is the £30 PowerVortex2 (but no SuperQuad). The card supports A3d 2.0 for two speakers and headphones. All prices include VAT, and more information can be found here. ®
