One of the chips on the card says . I was using it for a bit because it is a lot shorter than the Elite and S- 2. It is Pn. P and uses a wave port address that's not in the usual Soundscape range. Some games won't let you choose the port it uses, for their native Soundscape option. With Crusader, for ex, I had to edit the game's . Also, its MIDI patch set is a 1. MB ROM that's not that great.
This patch set may be worse than the VIVO's as it is older but also the same size. Not positive on that though, but it is better than a SB AWE. Otherwise it is probably the . This was not actually official though, because it is a Gateway- only card. I have had occasional issues with the Win. It seems to have problems detecting the card in some way and it doesn't always work.

However, I've noticed that performance in Windows 98 is very slow. And you'd need to download your audio driver from Creative. You just need to also download the Wave sets for the midi sound (EAPCI4M.ECW and EAPCI8M.ECW) and browse to them with the properties page in Device Manager.
But it's really not much longer (if at all) than an older SB1. AWE6. 4. The others are limited to SB 2. However, because lots of DOS games from 1. Soundscape natively, they can do the job quite well and their analog signal quality is much better than any SB I've ever heard (AWE6. Gold seems decent though).
