Topic: HDSPe RayDat with AMD Ryzen on Linux - do or don't?
my old Lenovo Thinkstation died recently. It was slow but good and it ran the RME Digi9636 very well.
Now I got myself this AMD Ryzen 5 3600 just because it was readily available. I had projects to finish. It doesn't have PCI for the RME Digi9636 any more. An adapter to PCIe with the ASM1083 chipset causes the PC to freeze when starting jackd (even though ALSA does find the card). I could do with 8 channels less and hook up my Yamaha 01V96i to the PC via USB, but it turns out that the USB of the Ryzen is too bad. It works with my half dead Thinkpad x230t, but not with the Ryzen.
Is the HDSPe RayDat, albeit expensive, an option to get low latency and 24 channels of ADAT IO with a Ryzen box? Or was it just a terrible mistake to buy this AMD garbage?
I really like to have 64samples of latency when playing software instruments. The Ryzen won't do it via USB with my Focusrite gear, even though it does work at such low latencies with the Thinkpad. So the Digiface USB will probably also not work properly wih the Ryzen trash.
Is anyone out there running the HDSPe RayDat on such a Ryzen system flawlessly?
