Hey everyone. I recently ordered a Mac Pro, and like some of you, want to do some gaming on it. As a guy whos worked with gaming PCs for quite a while now, I still had a few questions in my head in relation to gaming on the Mac Pro. First and formost was... Audio? While im not a big audiophile, I do know the importance of having a GOOD soundcard in your computer. Because not only does it sound better (duh) but it doesnt put strain on the processor, like alot of on-board sound does. The state of Audio has always been crappy on the Mac (IMO atleast). With the exception of that one Live! card that Creative put out for the mac, has there ever been another 3d party sound card..... ever? Any way, I know that it will be impossible to get drivers running under Mac OS X for whatever sound card I descide to get. But, Since im using it for gaming, I dont really care about whether or not it runs under OS X. Thing is tho.... PCIe isnt the best bus when it comes to Sound. I know theres some Pro Audio stuff out there that works with PCIe, but its probably overkill. Are we gunna be stuck with *gasp* USB? (I hope not...) Ive seen a couple USB sound card things, but am very very weary of them. Ive never used a USB sound card, and I doubt it would be anywhere as good as something directly on the PCI Bus..... BUT its a better option than nothing. Do we know if the Audio in the Mac Pro has its own processor (I think its called a DSP, im not sure tho, correct me if im wrong, I want to know), or does it take cycles from the Proc?
