    Visual latency is completely different than audio though. And high fps isn't just about reduced latency, it's also about smoothness.

    In principle I agree with you, but I was also being on the high side for casual users you know. 30ms is a bit much even for USB.

      Why would Ubuntu have such convoluted set up?
