That's not from Amazon, that's from a third-party seller using Amazon like eBay

Microcenter is where I seen it. They had it on the shelves at my store.

I wouldn't be surprised if EVGA is phasing it out. The software is pretty bad, especially compared to their direct competitor (Creative).

"Special order" here in Canada. That usually means it discontinued or about to be. Still, only a about $350 cdn here.

If there are "remnants" in retail at normal price maybe one can grab them all and sell them on internet.
I was pleased with the card.Not many issues for me.I used only stereo and ASIO.
The software is simple.This is fine for me personally.
The only worrying factor i have is the fact that a new driver was not released from august 2020.

Soundcards do not get frequent driver updates, they tend to just work for the most parts.

The driver doesn't need updates, but the software is updated somewhat regularly.

I did say usually and to be fair, these are far from usual times.

Latest software for my AE-5 listed on Creative's website for Sound Blaster Command is older than what i have installed. Their software pulls updates through the Command software. My installed version is 3.5.4.0, far newer than the 3.4.92 version they list on their website.

And that's even more true today as most audio engines are software based.

Everywhere I look its outta stock, on back order or special order here in Canada. The card is probably really low priority for EVGA and getting the parts is to hard to do right now. So you get the current situation.

The device driver is listed as version 6.0.105.0058. Googling suggest the driver is from earlier in 2021. I do remember pulling updates for both in 2021

Thanks.It's interesting that noone at creative put the time to list the new driver in their tech support section for all three models.

That's because its Creative, for my XFI-Theater it doesn't list the latest software. You can update to it and then pull the installer out of the TEMP directory which is what I did.

EVGA NU cards are still sold by EVGA

https://www.evga.com/products/produc...set=Audio+Card

As for MemoryExpress as a Premier Customer of theirs anything listed as SPECIAL ORDER doesn't mean its out of stock, means they don't typically carry do to demand. Meaning no one buys it.
