AudioPCI, while designed to be cheap, is still quite functional. When Creative got involved, they upgraded the chip a couple of times, and renamed the chip to ES and then ES This was a smart cost saving measure! I would also add that another drawback is the need for EMM to be loaded in order for the sound card to work in DOS, which prevents some older games from running e.
