SINGAPORE – 17 September 2008 – Creative Technology Ltd., a worldwide leader
in digital entertainment products, today announced the new Creative Sound
Blaster® X-Fi® Notebook sound card, designed to make all of your iTunes,
Rhapsody, Napster and MP3 music, movies and games on your notebook PC sound
better. It fits easily into the ExpressCard slot to upgrade the latest notebook
PCs to premium sound systems with award-winning X-Fi audio technology.

The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook when combined with the Creative
Wireless Receiver frees you from having to directly connect your notebook PC to
your speakers. Just relax on your couch with your notebook PC and listen to your
music, play a game or watch a movie while the audio plays wirelessly through the
Creative Wireless Receiver connected to powered speakers in any room of your
home. You can place up to four speaker systems with Creative Wireless Receivers
up to 30m away from your notebook and your audio will play wirelessly with no
delays or dropouts, without requiring a wireless network. You can also set up
individual zones to control playback independently in specific rooms.

“The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook and Creative Wireless Receiver were
designed to dramatically improve the sound quality of all of the music, movies
and games on your notebook PC and play it wirelessly anywhere in your home. This
allows you to put your speaker systems where you want them without having them
tied to your laptop and stuck on your desk,” said Steve Erickson, Vice President
and General Manager of Audio for Creative Labs Inc.

Creative’s award-winning X-Fi audio technology provides significant benefits to
any audio listening experience. For music, Creative X-Fi Crystalizer® technology
utilises audio algorithms to selectively restore the highs and lows from
instruments and vocals that were damaged or diminished during the iTunes, MP3,
game audio or other compression processes.

For PC gaming, Creative X-Fi CMSS®-3D technology provides a compelling surround
sound experience for headphones so gamers can hear the precise position of their
opponents even when they cannot see them. The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi
Notebook also features Creative’s EAX® ADVANCED HD™ audio technology, for
stunning positional audio realism in today’s hottest games.

For movies, the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook card includes a free
download of PowerDVD software with full DTS and Dolby Digital decoding support.
Creative X-Fi CMSS-3D technology provides virtual surround sound through stereo
speakers or headphones for an immersive cinematic movie audio experience.
