Is the higher latency of DDR4 over DDR3 a problem for DAWs?
I’m no expert but its hard to imagine that a latency difference of one or two nanoseconds will make any difference in terms of overall daw performance, especially when clock and bus speeds are so much higher which improves performance for large data transfers. My understanding is that smaller chunks of data transfer may suffer from higher latency but large chunks will not be impacted.
- newer processors are a good jump in power
- the bandwidth increase with DDR4 more than makes it up for the slight latency
