Anyone with win7-64 bootcamped iMac 2011?


I'm just looking to see if it's my installation that causes 4-5000 uS DPC latencies or if its a general problem with the new iMacs wifi chip (atheros 938x).
Depening on how the wifi driver setting "Scan Valid Interval" is set (60 sec default) im getting these high DPC spikes every cycle its looking for better access points. Since the iMac isnt that portable i would like to be able to turn this little feature off. Of course i can turn wifi off completely but when im not doing dead serious recordings its nice to have internet for mail and other stuff while editing. Though these spikes causes pop, clicks, crackles.. you know the drill..

My MacBook Pro early 2010 dont suffer from those spikes but it also uses a broadcom wifi chip so i guess this is a driver issue or some conflict between "something else" in my computer.

Can anyone with an iMac 2011 bootcamped win7 64 confirm this behavior i would be happy. Otherwise i guess its a reinstall ahead of me.

You can find the Latency Checker here if you havent used it before --> DPC Latency Checker
