Creative launches Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook sound card

Creative has announced the Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook sound card, that it says is designed to make MP3 and iTunes music, movies and games sound better on notebook PCs.

Fitting into a standard ExpressCard slot, when used with the Creative Wireless Receiver, the Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook frees users from the need to run wires from their notebook PCs to their speakers.

The audio is broadcast from the Sound Blaster to the Creative Wireless Receiver, which can be connected to powered speakers or to a Hi-Fi system.

Both the Sound Card and the Receiver will be priced at £59.99, with the Card available from the end of September and the receiver in October.
