Creative starts the year with a refreshed edition of the excellent Sound Blaster Z PCIe sound card, which now sports updated features that provide "effortless audio enjoyment" while maintaining the same high-quality audio specifications of the original. The name of the new card is Sound Blaster Z SE and the best part is that it can be already purchased by those interested.
Since a lot of people are working from home these days, Creative optimized the features of the Sound Blaster Z SE with two main tasks in mind, namely gaming and voice chat. The gaming profiles have been optimized for games like PUBG and Fortnite, but the users can also customize the EQ settings as needed. When talking to others online, no matter if there are games or more serious tasks involved, there are a bunch of pre-tuned Microphone EQs.
The multi-core Sound Core3D audio processor delivers 24-bit/192 kHz sound with a SnR value of 116 dB. Those wondering about the integrated headphone amplifier should be happy to know that the Sound Blaster Z SE can drive studio-grade cans of up to 600 ohm. The final items that should be highlighted are the following: Dolby Digital Live, DTS Connect, virtual 7.1 surround (for headphones), as well as discrete 5.1 audio (for speakers).
