Pro Tools Ultimate - Lynx Aurora (n) LT-TB vs LT-HD Digital Converters

Pro Tools Ultimate - Lynx Aurora (n) LT-TB vs LT-HD

I have Pro Tools Ultimate 2018.7 and the Lynx Aurora (n) 16 analog i/o with LM-DIG -> 32 i/o total.

I use the Aurora with the thunderbolt LT-HD card and lynx core audio driver.

I have a quite dated Macbook pro (late 2013, 16GB ram, 2,6GHz i7). I plan to upgrade in late 2019 to a new Macbook pro.

So far everything works as expected. In recording mode with a low buffer size of 64kb my Macbook can't really much i/o, VSTi, etc.

I have a Pro Tool HD native thunderbolt core at home which I'm contemplating to sell.

But I could use it with the Lynx and a LT-HD card. The LT-HD can be found used for about 150€ (I have the digilink cables at home). I have a degilink license.

Would there by any advantage in using the LT-HD card over the LT-TB in terms of overall performance (maybe less CPU usage), latency etc.?

Pro Tools HD native mode (Avid TB core, 3rd party Lynx Aurora (n) LT-HD) vs Core Audio mode (LT-TB)

- Automatic PT latency compensation for hardware inserts
- 64 i/o instead of 32 i/o with Pro Tools Ultimate

- Avid core audio driver has some issues
- Lynx mixer (almost zero latency monitoring) works only with LT-TB

Anything else to think of? I'm especially interested in latency and CPU usage.
