Topic: Fireface UC and Fireface 400 bandwidth
I've just bought a Fireface 400 this week which I've now got working fine. However, it's going to be a major pain for me to use firewire going forward so I was looking at swapping for Fireface UC while I can (ASAP).
Like I said, the FF 400 is now working fine on a Dell Inspiron with dual core 2ghz, gm45 chipset. It also has the ICH9 usb controllers which I read are probably necessary.
I've read that the UC reserves bandwidth on the USB bus, but why haven't devices done this before which would ultimately trumped firewire long ago? Can USB 2.0 really be as solid as Firewire for solid 2 way data streaming?
