I totally understand not wanting to be the trailblazer ! I’m in a similar situation to some extent.

I wanted to run my system at 96 kHz and I know that the 2008 8-Core will struggle with that, especially with CPU-intensive instruments, so I’ve come to the realization that I’ll need a faster machine, more than likely an over-clocked 3930k PC. However, like yourself, I don’t want to go and have the thing built if latency is going to be an issue with the PCIe interface or if the PCIe card is going to be unstable or use unstable drivers.

I’m hoping to hear some good experiences with the PCIe card but I’ve been just about a hair away of just ordering the card(s)/Interface and giving it a shot with my 8-Core and 6-Core.

When I spoke to Focusrite, they mentioned that I should be good to go with my setup goals but then followed it up with a ‘hey, when you try it, let us know how it works out for you’. Yep, that’s right, the old ‘beta-tester’ slogan.

I may just go ahead and try it with this setup though. I’m so curious to see if this is going to be a “win” ! If not, it’s MADI for me ! [;)]
