The main difference between the EV and previous chips was the inclusion of a built-in AC’97 codec hence producing a cheaper, single chip audio solution. The chip was also a PCI bus master device that was designed to provide high-speed access to system RAM and resources, for sample synthesis data and effect processing.

In comparison to the wide variety of chips on and sheer size of the older Soundscape boards, the highly integrated two chip design of the AudioPCI is an obvious shift in design philosophy. The chip was capable of spatializing all audio automatically, but still required DirectSound3D usage for specific localization of sounds. To ensure a successful installation, the card must be already installed on the system. An oddity is that the rear channel was connected to the same output jack as line input.
