The Strix is not released. But it is said to be released this year. I like the look of Tiamat better, however, the Strix is USB, the Tiamat uses all the other ports. I have the Asus Maximus VI Formula Mobo, so it could use the Tiamat, however, where would I plug my speakers into? I do not have a dedicated sound card. What would you guys get? Wait for the USB powered Strix, which I like, or the go for the Tiamat, which I would rather have Razer plus it looks better than Strix. Is Razer going to update the Tiamat to USB? I'd wait a year for that rather than get one now. What would you guys get and why?
