Hopefully that's what the DTS:X Ultra app is for lol

I think it is what the app is for. This is great news.

True, but there aren't any games yet that support DTS:X as far as I know

Cool already enjoying Dolby Atmos in RE2

I bought the Dolby Atmos app for my PC, but honestly not really noticing a difference from the "simulated surround" it replaced. I'm using Sennheiser 598cs, decent headphones. Was expecting a bit more after all of the hype.

NarutoFox1037d ago

So did I. I need to buy better headphones though.

Unless you have a minimum 7.1.4 setup, you'll never fully appreciate DTS X and Atmos.

I have Atmos enabled on my PC and with a good pair of headphones they sound amazing.

2pacalypsenow1037d ago

I'm sure they sound good, just not as good as a dedicated cinema room with 7.1.4.

I've found most Dolby products since Dolby surround to be nothing but hype. Atmos is OK, but it's benefits are more on the production side, not the user side. Dolby just has to keep making new things to keep selling products, as DTS pretty much took away a lot of their relevance.

What exactly this is? Plus we need to pay for that??

DTS is the competitor of Dolby when it comes to surround output. They both actually are companies that provide systems for channeling, encoding and decoding sound.

There are various formats that both these companies provide for example DTS HD and Dolby Digital TrueHD. These containers have been upgraded to support aerial sound (360 degrees). You have Atmos and DTS:X doing the same thing.

DTS from my understanding is a cheaper or even free alternative and will now support windows as well when it comes to DTS:X

They're both surround solutions and companies can choose which ones to use for their media for example.
