(Version: page rev. 1.33/ 18.02.2004)

For more information regarding features and drivers, look up the chip which is used on your card and check the general chip sets page. If your card is not listed below, see the code which is printed on top of the chip or check the web site of the manufacturer of your sound card. If these methods fail, use the latest version of the PCI hardware sniffer which has been ported by Veit Kannegieser. Search for pci*vk.zip at Hobbes.

Note that the compatibility list in table 1 also includes models which are not available for sale any more (see Discontinued model column). That hardware is mainly listed for users of existing machines. It provides a definite statement regarding the hardware's compatibility and tells about the required sound drivers. Furthermore, this approach ensures a complete overview of all known OS/2-compatible sound cards.
