What is difference between MPC2 & MPC3

By acdtech ·
I recently purchased a Diamond Monster 400 Sound card. Great card but it came with an MPC3 cable from the card to my dvd player. I have an MPC2 cable from another sound cound. What is the difference?

MPC2 and MPC3 is based on an industry standard that refers to the mininimum requierements that a pc need to run a particular device. MPC2 standard requires less pc minimum requirements than a MPC3 would.

For more detail, here is what http://www.techweb.com/encyclopedia/
has to say:

MPC

(Multimedia PC) The minimum hardware requirements for running multimedia software. Specified by the Multimedia PC working group of the Software Publishers Association, three levels were developed, all of which seem archaic by today's standards. Certified vendors used the MPC insignias on their products. The minimums for MPC and MPC2 levels were a 3MB 386SX and 4MB 486SX. Dell Computer was the first to be MPC3 certified in 1997. Since then, PCs have become much more powerful, and the specification has little relevance today.


MPC Level 3 (1996)

RAM: 8MB
Processor: 75MHz Pentium
Input: 2-button mouse, 101 key keyboard
Hard disk: 540MB
CD-ROM: 4x, 250 ms, CD-ROM XA multisession
Sound: 16-bit, wavetable MIDI playback
Graphics performance: color space conversion
and scaling, direct access to frame buffer
Video playback: OM1-compliant MPEG1 in
hardware or software.
