You are correct, the DPC Latency Checker utility from Thesycon is limited to Win7 and its cousins, and their website says so.

The LatencyMon tool from Resplendence offers Win10 compatibility and that's the standard utility these days. Link is below.

I wanted a card with 4GB of memory so I bought an RX580 from a friend. I know it's an overkill for DAW use, especially if you don't play games, but here are the results:

I'll do mine properly tomorrow, I have both AMD and Nvidia in the same laptop so it should be a good comparison, freshly installed and all the ms crap etc, removed.

What I do have to report is the last time I cleaned it up, a few weeks back. It was then able to run at 96k 64 buffer, with quite a few decent plug ins. Before when it was a bit of a hodge podge it would just crackle with no plug ins at 64/96. It would run for hours at those settings too.

I tested AMD 5600 XT and NVIDIA 1660 Super, they both are working with low latency.
The main advantage of the AMD is the less bloated driver and the possibility to easy only install the driver


For NVIDIA, use NVSlimmer (current version is 0.9)

BTW, do not forget to set "Power management mode" from Adaptive to Maximum Performance.

I have set a fixed paging file. I don't use iTunes, but I left Kaspersky AV running.
