RME PCI vs PCIe Latency and Performance differences?
Hello! Im planning to build a Micro ATX PC for live gigs. I play E Drums with a bunch of MIDI controllers using Drum racks and FX in Ableton Live.
So I´ve been researching and I want a PCI RME interface because of its stability and low latency.
It is not really and affordable solution cause at least I need 16 outputs and PCIe interfaces are not that cheap and moreover , you have to expand with MADI , AES or ADAT.
I was thinking on getting a Hammerfall HDSP 9652 And a pair of AEB8-O , and that would give me 16 outputs directly from the CPU to the mixer.
Problem is that nowadays , almost no motherboard (and specially no micro or mini ATX) come with PCI Slots anymore , but I´ve found this Gigabyte motherboard , which I would use with a 7700K Processor :
But the biggest and main question is : Is there such a difference (specially talking about latency , stability and performance) between the RME PCI and PCIe cards?...
