The UltraSound Plug & Play sound card makes use of the highly-integrated Interwave chip developed by Advanced Micro Devices. The Interwave chip was developed as the result of a joint venture between Gravis and AMD utilizing Advanced Gravis' UltraSound audio technology. The Interwave chip is the first to provide integration of the MPC-3 multimedia requirements. This integrated technology allows Gravis to deliver more honest reproduction of sound and reduce the card's cost without sacrificing the quality of the other components.
