ASRock’s Game Blaster is a PCI Express x1 add-on sound card featuring a Creative Sound Core3D audio chip and a Broadcom networking chip. This sound card is based on a Creative Sound Core3D chip, which provides CrystalVoice technology for improving the audio quality during audio chats and several other technologies for improving audio. This sound card offers 102 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for its outputs and 101 dB signal-to-noise ratio for its inputs, with a 192 kHz sampling rate and 24-bit resolution. Additionally, this card provides a Gigabit Ethernet port, which is controlled by a Broadcom BCM57781 chip. This chip supports the “teaming” function, allowing you to combine two Gigabit Ethernet ports for doubling the networking transfer rate to 2 Gbps.

It offers four gold-plated jacks for analog audio connection, optical and coaxial SPDIF outputs, a Gigabit Ethernet port, an internal header for the front audio, and an SPDIF header if your video card needs a physical connection in order to provide digital audio on its HDMI output.

ASRock bundles the Game Blaster add-on sound card with their X79 Extreme9 and X79 Extreme 6/GB motherboards.
