I just got in a Soundblaster X1 and its pretty impressive, tried it with the 600ohm DT880 and they sounded good and pretty loud at 95 percent volume. I emailed Creative and here's the power chart:

1.2 Vrms (90 mW) @16 ohm
1.7 Vrms (90 mW) @32 ohm
2.4 Vrms (38 mW) @150 ohm
2.4 Vrms (10 mW) @600 ohm

It adjusts based on ohm rating detected, there's no way to override it in software. I tried it as a DAC with the Topping A90 and it sounded really good. Doesn't come with an ASIO driver, Wasapi push works but not pull (event). Also it works on the Android phone which was neat. I can send it over for testing if you like. The software isn't needed to use it, just plugs in and Windows finds it.
