With my new system I’ve been able to push my profire 2626 to 64 samples latecy, the lowest it allows, and run projects my 2-year-old quad core Q6600 requied 1024 samples.
The only problem I’m noticing is that when I move the mouse, a window, etc. I occasionally get a minor click or pop in the audio. I never got this on my old machine, which had an nVidia card. This new machine has an ATI Radeon HD 5570. I have the latest ATI drivers right from their website and I have aero and all effects turned off (athough maybe I should turn them on because i hear this uses more graphics acceleration).
Any quick suggestions on what might make this go away? It’s not a showstopper and I could go to 128 samples and I bet they’d go away. But I wanted to know if this was a known issue with a quick fix.
