nVIDIA USB controller chips

I’ve noticed that quite a few people using USB audio devices have problems with latency and audio drop-outs, while other people use the same devices with no problems at all - So, I’ve been doing a bit of searching, and found this from Tascam:

PCs with nVIDIA USB controller chips may not offer optimum performance for
audio streaming over USB 2.0, resulting in audio artifacts. A higher latency
setting or the addition of a non-nVIDIA USB 2.0 card is required.
o To find out what controller chip your PC uses:
ƒ Go to START > Control Panel > System
ƒ Click on the Hardware tab, then the Device Manager button
ƒ Click the “+” (plus) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers
ƒ You will see the chip manufacturer of all installed USB controllers

This could perhaps be the root of some peoples audio problems - I think that it’s certainly worth checking out when these issues come up.

Hopefully this will be some help.

(Not sure if this is the right board, so any moderator out there wants to move it, please do.)
