    What is Full Duplex & Half Duplex in sound cards ?
    What the difference the user will experience while listening from each sound card individually ?

    Is the onboard sound provided on Intel 845/865 motherboards are full duplex capable ?

    off to "never ever" land
    damn i remember full and half duplex modems
    i cant recall soundcards
    wait lemme give it a shot...
    umm ok i think its abt sound input and sound output
    more easily ... mic and speakers
    half duplex are the realllllyyy old sound cards ... they arent even available anymore ofcourse
    all cards nowadays are full duplex
    back to the topic
    long long time back ... say if u were voice chatting ...
    either u could hear output from ur speakers ... or u could talk in ur mic ...
    this was half duplex
    now ofcourse u can talk and listen at the same time ... thats full duplex
    this is a very crude description that too if its right
    guys correct me if im wrong ...

    Better explanation

    Sound card which can sned & recive inputs & output streams at the same time are called full duplex, all the pentium 4 motherboard from the Intel 845, VIA P4M266 are Full duplex, even onboard

    sorry :oops: what i meant was , Play and Listen(via Mic) Simultaneously

    That is in Voice Chat "Hear and talk " Simultaneously...

    And Excuse me GXSaurav, Full Duplex is a pure function of soundcard(or Soundchip) not the function of Processor or Motherboard(chipset).... (As far as i know...)
