AC'97 and HD audio front panel layouts
This shows the difference between the AC'97 and HD audio front panels. The main reason for the difference is to do with speaker assignment. With the older AC'97 system, only a single pair of stereo speakers was supported. These could be switched on and off by a standard switching stereo...
