Asus Rolls Out ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo 7.1 Gaming Sound Card

Maximum PC: The death of discrete sound cards may have been greatly exaggerated.

However, discrete sound cards still push cleaner, crisper sound than onboard solutions, and that's exactly what Asus promises with its new ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo solution.
