Drivers show C-Media... quite bleak I would like to say... it even doesn't perform better that integrated audio... where is the catch?

Almost all Cmedia based cards outperform on-board. Not so much because of what audio chipset is used, but because the cards have much better audio circuitry and DA/AD converters than on-board solutions, with only a handful of exceptions going either way.
