Audio – Does This Video Card Support Sound?

audiographics cardhdmi

Probably a rookie question but here goes…I am looking to buy a new video card for a few year old PC which will be used as a media centre. The card I am looking at is this one, with the main aim being to play blu-ray films. In the product description it states that the card has 7.1 audio channel support, does this mean it will play the sound from the blu-ray through the HDMI, or do I need a separate sound card?

Best Answer

Yes, the HDMI output will provide audio to the TV (or monitor); all HD 4600 series cards support this. See this article for more info, or the ATI spec.
