[Ardour-Dev] I have a few questions on performance concerning CPUs and APUs.

Hello Outro,

what frequencies are you talking about?
And are you sure, that kiloherz would make sense in your context?

I'd doubt that Linux would max. out at any point with 1 kiloherz.
Standard Audio is up to >= 20 kiloherz and Linux does handle that 
perfectly fine. ;-)

Kind regards,
