Audigy and Audigy 2 uses completely different sound processor, so unless you can find an Audigy 2 chip and solder that onto an Audigy sound card, the answer is no.
And that better sound quality claim? It’s all psychological. [/B]
That maybe so, but chances are that the next gen chip for the Audigy 2 may actually be based on the previous chip used in the audigy 2.
It wouldn’t make sense to completely re-write drivers if they could make the new chip software functions the same, and just change what happens inside the chip.
In this case, installing audigy 2 drivers wouldn’t make a speck of difference since the changes would be internal to the chip and not external.
I think then, it’s totally a moot point upgrading audigy 1 drivers to audigy 2 drivers, since it still depends on what chip you have.
