Really bad news about Windows 8 and high-end audio

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Basically, Windows 8 has some change that dramatically increases latency and probably audio judder and crackling.

 

It appears to be related to a power saving feature, but this has not been confirmed.

 

I think we maybe should start some sort of petition on this.

It's not a power saving feature, it's a change in stock timer mechanisms, and that doesn't translate into streaming issues on real world usage, such as DAWs.

The main Windows (Vista/7/8) issue is the lack of 24/88.2 on generic USB drivers.

 

Anyway, Windows 8 is being discussed on its thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/631736/windows-8
