Toshiba sound driver thakes a lot of CPU

More horror stories about Toshiba's crappy drivers.
I just find out that turning on the year-candy features in Toshiba (x505) sound driver (especially the Dolby stuff) will eat one on my CPU's cores!
The high CPU utilization cannot be viewed directly from Task Manager since it is generated by a driver. Instead can be seen from Sysinternals Process Explorer under the DPCs.
