PC with I2S / HDMI output of DSD128+ ?

I have a Gustard x20 which takes DSD triple and quad only over I2S (using HDMI), so I was thinking it would be great to build a PC that had to power to output that high level DSD and that had an I2S out over HDMI. Is there such a sound card?

I know of no "computer" that outputs i2s via HDMI, but there are numerous USB>I2S converters. This is where the DAC clocking would be created,  and likely better than what would come out of the average computer anyway.

Direct I2S is now limited at 192Khz.  Unless you are going through a DDC which is essentially USB converted into I2S, then you can do whatever output limitations your USB interface chip is capable at.  Pinkfaun I2S is the king of I2S and is limited at 192KHz as well.  Pinkfaun does have USB card that has no problem putting out those DSD signals, but that isn’t direct I2S

 

Now, even those new Transports are coming out of China, they have internal DDC, converted USB signal to output I2S, and the newest Xmos can do D1024 just fine.

 

But if you are looking for Direct I2S, it is 192Khz only
