Seem to be the final release - http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/
Any known improvements since beta?
Here is one thread running on this matter - http://forums.creative.com/creativelabs/board/message?board.id=soundblaster&message.id=48192
Thanks jiiteepee. -Just got a new HDD and looking for drivers to install.
Was wondering [since they don't say] if they supported OpenAL:

OpenAL Hardware acceleration on our Audigy series sound cards."
But it's cool, hope they work as well as the betas in that year's span
between official beta and final.
They don't support Open AL. I know because I installed them and gave Quake 4 a spin. When I check the configuration of the sound card it said that Open AL wasn't available. Give the Youp PAX 2.31 drivers a try, you'll like them.
these drivers where out couple days ago news kinda old lol I love these set better then pax 2.31 anyway kinda hard to chose
Aren't the YouP PAX drivers based on Creative drivers --> so, can you tell, what is different with OpenAl driver on those YouP drivers compared to original Creative drivers?
P.S. You should read the thread which is 'running' on CT forum --> link is on my 1st post. Great information there.
In my case I just installed on new HDD so I haven't installed
Quake 4 or Doom 3 yet to check OpenAL. All is VERY well here
with these 2.08.0004s, recommend them! [BF2/ CoD2/ FEAR/ iTunes ]
Started out a bit confused, but I'd say it's as close to confirmed as possible without word [that I can see] from Creative themselves: "These drivers include all of the changes from the previous drivers plus EAX 4 HD and full hardware OpenAL support." -[JohnZS at Creative Labs Forums]
That's nuff yakking, go get em.
Newbiee me? LOL!!!:rofl::rofl:
I know that the Youp PAX drivers are based on the Creative drivers. Go play Quake 4 or Doom 3 and see if the Open AL support is there with the new drivers. It isn't on the options because it isn't avalable. As for quality in the drivers, the Youp ones will always win hands down.
P.S. I did read the thread on the CT forum and found nothing interesting for the matter...:sleep:
Did u also install this:
Because for me, the new Creative Drivers are working with OpenAl in Quake4.
Also, if you have problems with the equalizer, you can use this method to correct the pfmod file, as I have tested it with the new version and it works.
Someone knows if those new drivers are good for the Notebook version too?

Previous BETA drivers were same to Notebook and other A's, so I wonder why this driver shouldn't be good for Notebook too.
I`ve installed the drivers. Seems great. Quake4 does support OpenAL.
I have one problem though,
When i`m playing Fable: Lost Chapter, the audio seems to be swapped ?? I think the front speakers is playing the background music, while the rear speakers is playing the effects or dialog audio. Is it supposed to be like this ? Other games is working fine. CMSS on or off, same result also.
Do you guys disable the turbo mode in the registry ?
I`m using 7.1 Inspire T7900 speaker. Previously 4.1 also has this problems.
Pentium4 2.4B , Radeon9700Pro , Winxp SP2
Please help me.
My Audigy 2 Value doesn't work with the new driver for some reason. It won't even detect the card. When I reistall the beta drivers, everything works fine.
Audigy 2 value over here running fine on new drivers. Perhaps try drivercleaner.
Do I really need this mod to use the equalizer??
I mena... if I use these new Creative .004 drivers with the A4 ISO by YouP to have that software, do I still need this file??
In case, how and where do I place it??
Try it out. I'm using an A1. I know that generally whenever I install new drivers, the PFMOD file needs to be modified or changed.
So this PfMod.dll file is from the EQ of the original software package from Creative ???
Install drivers from CD first (with all the panels you need). Then install this update package.
Equalizer will work. Just don't use intenal installer and delete or overwrite all Creative shared files. Doing this will broke everything. I know it sux but this is how you should do it.
I don't get it why creative can't FOR ONCE make a decent software along soundcards.
Always some beefed up hardware with pre-alpha software that has problems all the time with every thing you do. Most of Creative apps can be installed with their own installer but most of them won't even work unless you install whole batch from original CD. Don't get it why is this good for anything.
